- Master Class for Principals and School Leaders
Master Class for Principals and School Leaders
Friday 1 September 2017
G9 Education will once again present Master Classes for Principals and school leadership teams. G9 is a consortium of highly experienced educational consultants working together to improve schools and schooling.
The theme of the five 45 minute sessions will be confirmed closer to the time.
The Master Class program has been designed to give school leaders practical guidance about how to design, align and implement key school improvement reforms. The introductory session will outline why current practice is not working and what needs to be done to improve schools. The following sessions will focus on the key levers within schools for generating improved performance - identifying the stage of development of your school, improving the quality of teaching ; improving the quality of professional learning; and responding to the need to provide young people with global competencies.
The sessions will have a school-wide focus and outline proven practices for getting the whole-school curriculum right; getting staff performance right; and getting whole-school teaching right.
Participants will be challenged by the latest research explaining why schooling needs to be transformed and participate in sessions that build the case for and provide the tools needed to
•diagnose where your school is at and determine the key focus for improvement and consequent strategies to adopt
•focus staff performance on the things that really matter
•ensure their school’s professional learning processes result in good teaching in more classrooms more of the time
•produce globally ready students and internationally minded schools
These sessions derived from a well-established evidence base focus on how to re-engineer current core schooling processes and practices to produce significant school-wide improvement. They provide participants with practical ways of looking at taken-for-granted approaches that may no longer represent best practice.
Peter’s expertise as an executive researcher and consultant in education has included the full range of areas in education research, policy and service provision – accountability models, school effectiveness, school performance, curriculum structures, leadership and professional learning.
