The Australian education system is struggling to provide an excellent and equitable education for all young people. With student outcomes persistently below minimum standards and communities facing multiple compounding factors of disadvantage, Regional Rural and Remote schools (RRR), in particular, need leadership support.
In response to these challenges, the Future Leaders Program (FLP) was announced as part of the Australian Government’s ‘Our Plan for Quality Education’ released on 10 May 2019.
Schools in RRR communities face unique demands, such as limited access to support services and challenges in attracting and retaining staff. In these schools, the pipeline of ready school leaders is declining.
The FLP tests a new approach to these challenges by fostering the ambitions and potential of participating teachers, and developing their skills and aptitude for the challenging yet rewarding roles of school leadership.
We look for well-rounded and passionate individuals who have the qualities to create change, inside the classroom and beyond. We are looking for your ability to demonstrate the following eight competencies, which are based on evidence of effectiveness in the classroom: (1) Leadership and achievement, (2) Commitment to our vision and mission, (3) Communication and influencing ability, (4) Problem solving, (5) Organisational and planning ability, (6) Resilience, (7) Humility, respect and empathy, (8) Learning and self-evaluation.
