School leadership

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

To achieve this, we're establishing a School Leadership Incubator in partnership with the Graduate School of Education at the University of Melbourne. We're investing more than $1 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 School Leadership Incubator will work at the school and system level to build leadership capability and support the reframing of practice across the education sector.

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

The first cohort of Menzies School Leadership Fellows will be appointed toward the end of 2018.
