Educational Leadership Institute

WHAT IS THE EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTE?

The Educational Leadership Institute is an initiative of the University of Sydney's Faculty of Education and Social Work. Our mission is to increase the effectiveness of educational leadership by engaging current and aspiring school leaders in relevant, high quality and evidence-based events, programs and courses.

The Institute will be a meeting place for you to connect with other school leaders and university academics and to discuss current issues, research and challenges and to build lasting professional connections. Membership will give you access to all Institute events including those open to members only.

OUR VISION

Our vision is to create a forum for positive change in school leadership by providing unmatched and inspiring opportunities for established and emerging leaders to enhance their careers. We will achieve this by enlisting a powerful coalition of leaders to support them in their professional growth.

The institute will provide opportunities for participants to become part of a vibrant learning community and develop their own capacity as educational leaders who meet challenges, advocate for necessary change and collaborate in and across schooling sectors.

OUR VALUES

We will carry out our work using a set of clear values to inform all that we provide. These values are:

  • Instructional leadership: we give primacy to instructional leadership as a core responsibility of school leaders.
  • Inclusivity: we will insure that inclusive practice is a feature of all that we do.
  • Evidence-based practice: we will ensure that our work is informed by evidence obtained in the field.
  • Relevance: we will ensure that contemporary issues and directions in education inform our work.
