Developing leadership capacity in the Hume Region, Victoria

Stephen Brown
Regional Director, Hume Region, Department of Education and Early Childhood Development, Victoria
In this increasingly complex education landscape, improvement is not accomplished by simply telling principals to achieve this or that. It involves capacity building. The Victorian education system has a strong role in leadership development, and in the Hume Region our focus is on supporting the development of instructional leadership. The region is rolling out a training program for its principals and assistant principals that will cover topics including numeracy, literacy, brain science and the learner, analysis and strategic use of data, negotiation skills, and strategic leadership of cultural change.
