The QSchool program for aspiring school leaders in South Australia

Kaye Johnson

One of the most important tasks confronting education systems in Australia is to assist the development of the next generation of school leaders. As one way to address this need, the South Australian Department of Education and Children's Services has set up the QSchool for Aspiring School and Preschool Leaders program. The program aims to inform potential new principals about the nature of school leadership, demystifying its complexities and showing how aspirants can build a bridge from their existing skills, knowledge and experience to take on a senior leadership role in a school. QSchool offers presentations from educational leaders, access to learning resources and opportunities for discussion and networking with other leadership aspirants.
