The SLI’s Middle Leader Online Induction program provides newly appointed, first time substantive or long term relieving assistant principals and head teachers an orientation into the role of a middle leader through a two-part program:

  • Component 1 – self-paced eLearning (prerequisite), and

  • develop greater confidence and capacity to lead others

  • enhance their reflective practice as a leader to influence change and school climate.

The self-paced module offers participants the opportunity to engage with professional learning covering the following topics:

  • Leading Learning
  • Leading Self
  • Leading Others
  • Leading Inquiry
To access Component 1, you need to use the latest version of your browser (Google Chrome or Internet Explorer are recommended.)

Component 2

Component 2 is a two-day online conference, which will include the opportunity to consolidate learning from Component 1 through collegial conversations. In addition, participants will engage with leaders across the department in live seminars on key department policy and priorities relevant to the role of middle leader.

The final virtual conference will be held on 26-27 October 2021.
