Program Overview:

School leadership as a lever for improving student outcomes means that today’s leaders must be very clear on which practices do and do not lead to school improvement. As a school leader, knowing why something is important, knowing what to do about it, knowing how to do it, and knowing when to do it are key questions to ask around assessment.

There is clear evidence that assessment for learning raises student achievement. Improving leadership knowledge and skill is a strategy directly aimed at raising student achievement.

Principals, Deputy Principals, senior leadership teams, school leaders and curriculum leaders.
