  • The pivotal factor in achieving the best possible outcomes for all students is high-quality teachers and teaching. Principals and school leaders have an integral role to play in creating the professional culture that is foundational to continuous professional learning, effective teaching, successful student learning, and school improvement.

    Teacher standards, professionalism and performance development have emerged as dominant themes in current educational discourse, both nationally and internationally. Over two days, the 2012 Leadership Conference offered principals and other school leaders the opportunity to consider their pivotal role in promoting and ensuring high teacher standards and quality performance development to support continuous school improvement.
