Professional learning for teachers and school leaders

Supporting the learning and development of teachers
Our professional learning programs, exclusively for our partner schools, increase individual and collective efficacy of school teachers and leaders.

Professional learning programs

We run the following programs exclusively for teachers and leaders in our partner schools.

The Leading Excellence program is NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) accredited and draws on University of Sydney expertise through the Coaching Psychology Unit, the Sydney School of Education and Social Work and the National Centre for Cultural Competence.

The program aims to make school leaders feel supported in building school cultures that focus on excellence, and the role of leadership in creating transformative learning environments for students.

Principals and Deputy Principals are supported to lead cultures of excellence within their schools through quality coaching conversations and workshops that enable new networks for relational trust to be established amongst leadership teams.
