Principal Induction Conference

The conference is a core component of engagement for newly appointed, first time principals or long-term relieving principals.

The conference program is grounded in evidence-informed research and aims to:

  • deepen principals’ understanding of their role
  • support principals in meeting their accountabilities
  • develop leadership capability by strengthening school leadership and management practices
  • build collegial networks.

Who should participate?

Principals appointed since February 2021, including those who were unable to attend the Semester 1 Principal Induction Conference in 2021, and long-term relieving principals (six months or more) who have not previously attended a principal induction conference.

Conference format

The Semester 2 PIC will be held online from 25-27 August 2021. Teacher relief will be available to participants, funded by the SLI.
