The SSTUWA, in partnership with TLN in Melbourne, are pleased to offer this online learning opportunity.
Taking on a leadership role in a small or rural school has additional challenges to a suburban or larger school. You can be isolated from networks, resources and systems support. There may be fewer opportunities to be mentored into the leadership role. There is the same amount of tasks to complete, but with fewer people to do the work. Relationships with families and parents are often quite different in rural settings. In this session, the presenter, a Principal of a small rural Victorian school will explore the strategies that they have used to find success and satisfaction in the role.
The presenter will set out approaches that new and aspirant leaders can use to build their leadership capabilities and learn to thrive in the unique circumstances of working in a small school, or a rural school.
The event will be three hours in duration and consist of live delivery of content at the specified time by a presenter and a host. You will also have an opportunity to interact with other participants, take a break and engage with the presenter online. Completing this course will contribute to three hours of professional learning and a certificate will be provided at the end of the session.
