Overview of FASTstream

FASTstream benefits participants, schools and the NSW education system by developing highly-skilled school leaders of the future.

Participants complete placements as above establishment teachers in NSW public schools.

They receive one-on-one in school coaching and mentoring, and access to evidence-informed professional development and training through the SLI, with participants being skilled, supported and equipped to lead schools within 10 years.

Each participant’s journey will be tailored to their individual development needs as they move through the 3 phases of the program. 

All participants are required to spend at least one placement, of a minimum of two years, in a regional or rural school. This includes participants who have already worked in a regional or remote setting.
