The program equips senior school leaders with the insights, skills and confidence to accelerate their professional development as they strengthen the performance of those around them. The Deputy Principals Leadership Colloquium employs a blended learning methodology based around expert tuition, peer knowledge-sharing, and practical workplace application.

The Deputy Principals Leadership Colloquium is an integrated nine month leadership program that focuses on the critical dimensions of effective  school leadership.

"I enjoyed the Deputy Principals Leadership Colloquium for a variety of reasons. The focus in my role is education support, but it was extremely useful to learn that I was encountering the same problems as my mainstream counterparts in terms of leadership, management and staff. The models presented were extremely useful, and I continue to reflect back on my notes to jog my memory and utilise with the staff at my present school"​

Jennifer Oversby,

Principal

"If you want to get serious about your approach to leadership this is the perfect course. Our facilitator told us that you will get out of the program what you are willing to put in, and he was absolutely correct. For me, it was a lot of work, but it had a far-reaching impact on my approach to leadership."

Gavin Hirschhausen,

Principal

"WOW!! What a ride I have been on in undertaking the Deputy Principals Colloquium! I want to thank each of you for your thoughts and ideas in helping me on my leadership journey."
