Making the Leap Banner

Program Overview:

Transitions of any kind are major challenges, however, the transition from teacher to Deputy Principal is more complex than most. It requires a high level of preparation regarding mindset, skills, knowledge, relationships and organisation. A well planned transition has the potential to bring early success, and the key to success is having a plan. This workshop will address the key research on role transition and will give participants a clear perspective of what they need to do, demonstrate, understand and develop before they make the leap.
