School leadership

We aspire to enhance leadership capability in Australia’s education sector to improve student outcomes.

To achieve this, we're establishing a Menzies School Leader Fellowship program in partnership with the Graduate School of Education at the University of Melbourne. We're investing $1.5 million over the next three years to work with internationally renowned Laureate Professor John Hattie to explore how future Menzies School Leadership Fellows can be supported to build collective efficacy in their schools.

The Menzies School Leader Fellowship program will work at the school and system level to build leadership capability and support the reframing of practice across the education sector. We're expecting to launch this initiative in November 2018.

Ms Kerry Elliott, from the Graduate School of Education, has been appointed as the first Menzies Research Fellow to support the incubator.

Applications for the Menzies School Leader Fellowship are currently open. The first cohort of Menzies School Leadership Fellows will be appointed in early 2019.
