catholic schools’ 


A powerful learning experience linking self, school and system

Foreword by Susan Young, Assistant Director, CESA

Catholic Education SA values the significance of middle leadership roles and the contribution these leaders make to the  quality of teaching and learning, wellbeing and the continuous improvement of our schools. Our strategic focus on middle leadership has enabled our system to develop programs which enrich the diverse, distributed and interconnected approaches to leading excellence within our schools. The Middle Leaders Program connects system leaders with teachers working in these roles, and allows us to examine and reflect upon leadership distribution and succession planning. We can also target future professional development to support middle leaders in their current roles and their aspirational leadership pathways. Our partnership with NESLI has enabled us to co-construct a leadership program that finds deep connection with our Catholic context, our leaders and our unique system of schools.​
