Over the course of the program, participants will engage in a variety of activities aimed to enhance learning, establish networks and implement effective change related to the specific context of their own school.
The Teach To Lead program encompasses the following components:
Twelve days of highly interactive workshops are spread across the program’s first year. These sessions occur largely during school holidays and will give you an opportunity to build strong connections with the rest of your cohort. They also include time for personal reflection.
100% of participants who have attended our workshops in 2016 would recommend them to others in their role.
“The first Teach To Lead sessions exceeded my expectations. Although I know I will have challenges this term and a large workload for the rest of the year, I feel much more equipped to be an effective leader.” – 2016 Fellow
Full program dates for the 2017 cohort are available here.
The Impact Initiative ensures the skills and concepts you build through the program are put into practice – with measurable results. Each participant designs and implements a project with the aim of raising student achievement.
The Impact Initiative also sets goals for developing yourself and your team, in support of your overarching goals for students. You will receive regular feedback on your Impact Initiative from your coach and peers.
“How lucky I am to have the opportunity to hear from Science leaders who are facing the same issues and have worked really hard to solve them. We are saving years of work by sharing our Impact Initiatives.” – 2016 Fellow
Throughout the two-year program, you will have a Leadership Coach who will support and guide you to set and achieve your goals. You will regularly meet with your Leadership Coach face-to-face and your coach will observe and provide feedback on how you have been performing in your current leadership role.
By participating in Teach To Lead, you will join a network of high-performing leaders, who will challenge and inspire one another. These networks will be life-long.
Teach To Lead will foster continued connections and leadership opportunities beyond the two year program. Our aim is for you to continue to increase your impact on students throughout your career.
You will also be invited to further hone your leadership skills as an alumnus, through continued engagement with the Teach To Lead program. This could come in several ways, such as:
For 2017 Teach To Lead Fellows, program costs (including all meals and accommodation where required during workshops) are covered by our government and philanthropic partners and your school. Fellows are generally expected to fund their own travel to and from program sessions, with the exception of Fellows travelling to sessions outside their home state.
As the program makes a significant investment in you, we expect you to make the most of it. A commitment to active participation in all aspects of the program is essential.
