Critical to the success of a school is the quality of its principal.
Learning to lead is at the heart of a school leader’s daily practice and great leaders never stop learning.
The Australian Professional Standard for Principals: Leadership Profiles have been designed to promote the learning and growth of school leaders, empowering them to develop and support teaching that maximises impact on student learning.
The Leadership Profiles build upon the Australian Professional Standard for Principals to describe the leadership practices of principals in greater detail and outline what these practices look like at increasing levels of proficiency. In this way, the Profiles provide a comprehensive developmental framework and shared understanding of highly effective school leadership.
The Leadership Profiles acknowledge the dynamic nature of school leadership, helping school leaders to understand their practice and impact in relation to their context, career stage and capability. The progressive statements that make up the Profiles enable school leaders to review their practice, to recognise their strengths and focus effort where development is most needed.
