The Middle Leadership Imperative
2020 Empowered Leadership Series
Empowering middle leaders through exposure to, and by learning from, research informed high quality middle leading practices with a specific focus on the effective leadership of teaching and learning.
Semester 1 2021 pilot in progress. Registrations for further programs from Term 2.
The middle leader has become increasingly more important to the work of schools through increased accountability and responsibility of principals (Dinham 2016). The role of the middle leader is evolving with specific purpose in facilitating collegial professional learning and in the development of quality student learning (Ronnerman 2014). However, ambiguity still exists in relation to what middle leaders are expected to do (Fluckiger et al 2005).
This course will address an extensive review of available research on middle leadership leading to an effective undertaking of the middle leadership role in NSW schools through the recognition that middle leadership is teacher driven, site responsive and encompasses team based professional learning. Participation in this course will empower middle leaders through a practical understanding of the environmental and personal inputs into middle leadership, the key roles middle leaders play and the potential impact in relation to teachers and students.
