G9 Education will once again present Master Classes for Principals and school leadership teams. G9 is a consortium of highly experienced educational consultants working together to improve schools and schooling.

The Master Class program has been designed to give school leaders practical guidance about how to design, align and implement key school improvement reforms. The introductory session will outline the role of the school leader in promoting and sustaining school improvement. The following sessions will focus on the key levers within schools for generating improved performance – identifying the stage of development of your school, improving the quality of teaching ; improving the quality of professional learning

The sessions will have a school-wide focus and outline proven practices for getting the whole-school curriculum right; getting staff performance right; and getting whole-school teaching right.

Key topics include:

Participants will be challenged by the latest research explaining why schooling needs to be transformed and participate in sessions that build the case for and provide the tools needed to;

  • Apply the range of leadership styles needed to sustain school improvement
  • Ensure their school’s professional learning processes result in good teaching in more classrooms more of the time
  • Focus staff performance on the things that really matter
  • Diagnose where your school is at and determine the key focus for improvement and consequent strategies to adopt

These sessions derived from a well-established evidence base focus on how to re-engineer current core schooling processes and practices to produce significant school-wide improvement. They provide participants with practical ways of looking at taken-for-granted approaches that may no longer represent best practice.
