Catholic schools' MIDDLE LEADERSHIP 
PROGRAm

A powerful learning experience linking self, school and system.

Program duration

6 MONTHs

The leaders of Catholic schools balance, at the core of their professional practices, the essential interplay between Catholic identity, faith formation and the stewardship of a broad set of outcomes that are indicative of a quality Catholic education.

Such responsibilities and related accountabilities are too important to be left to only one person or one leader. Middle leaders have a vital role to play in connecting leadership with learning and ensuring a harmonious connection between learning and faith. The Catholic Schools’ Middle Leadership Program (MLP) encompasses a targeted and purposeful use of dialogic learning (learning that takes place as a result of egalitarian dialogue), practical workplace application (through a personal leadership project) and guided self-reflection. The program is delivered over an extended six-month duration to ensure participants have time to fully integrate their learning into their everyday practice. The leadership of Catholic schools is inclusive – it requires the collective efforts and partnerships of many to enable students to be the best they can be. The MLP is designed to support middle leaders within their schools to be part of the collective endeavour to achieve this aspiration. The MLP is open to teachers in Positions of Added Responsibility (POR) or exercising leadership in other capacities. The program is focused on the effective execution of middle leadership and is therefore equally suitable for leaders intending to stay in the middle leadership tier as well as those moving towards higher leadership roles.​

FOREWORD BY SUSAN YOUNG, ASSISTANT DIRECTOR, CESA

Catholic Education SA (CESA) 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 Catholic Schools’ Middle Leadership 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.​​
