FASTstream goes face-to-face

Educators from the FASTstream program team are visiting participants, host principals and school-based mentors across NSW over the next couple of months.

Experienced school leaders from the SLI’s  FASTstream team are out and about over February and March meeting some of the first 50 participants in the new program.

They are also meeting the host principals and school-based mentors as part of the ‘settling in’ process for the program.

FASTstream is a program designed to identify and support 30 teachers and 20 teaching graduates each year to fast track their careers as school leaders.

Participants receive support, mentoring and professional development opportunities from the SLI, guiding them to become skilled educational leaders and ready for principalship within 10 years.

This week our team has visited 7 schools across the Sydney and Central Coast regions, while a further 11 schools will be visited next week including in Sydney, Newcastle and the Hunter, Port Macquarie, Coffs Harbour, the Southern Highlands and Goulburn. 

These visits are an opportunity for participants, principals and mentors to get to know the SLI team members who will be working with them and supporting them during their FASTstream journey.

Applications for the next round of FASTstream placements will open in the coming weeks.
