School Leadership

Are our school leaders properly equipped? School leadership is at critical leverage point for school system improvement. The education system requires a talent pipeline of school leaders that are better prepared for the complex role of leading the improvement required to lift student performance.

The Menzies School Leader Fellowship Program

Launched in 2018, this program is a dynamic incubator process that capitalizes individual, school, cohort and system level leadership and aspires to develop scalable systemic leadership interventions to improve student learning outcomes.

The Fellowship is led by a multi-sector collaboration comprised of school leaders, their school and corporate, philanthropic and university partners.

The Program aims to:

  • Delineate the talent pipeline required to improve student performance at a whole of system level and the leadership development platform to support this
  • Build the tools, techniques and frameworks required to scale leadership development program insights across the system
  • Identify best practice in Collective Efficacy in schools

This initiative is supported by an outstanding Advisory Board chaired by Tom Bentley, Executive Director for Policy and Impact, RMIT.
