2017 LEAP Leadership Conference


LEAP (Leading Educators Around the Planet) is an International peer-shadowing program for Principals, Deputy-Principals, Directors and non school-based education personnel. The program involves hosting an international colleague for a two-week leadership program in July, and being hosted by that international colleague (in their location) for a reciprocal two-week program in the September school holidays.


In exciting news, LEAP is hosting a conference featuring Pasi Sahlberg (Direcor General of CIMO (Center for International Mobility and Cooperation) at the Finnish Ministry of Education and Culture in Finland). The conference “Secrets of Success: How high achieving systems select, professionally develop and care for teachers’ and leaders’ wellbeing” is a vital gathering for all school-based or system-based leaders and teachers who are keen to learn the secrets about the most effective international systems for teaching and leading.

Anglican EdComm were pleased to have one of the Directors of LEAP, Dr Warren Marks, speak at the recent Anglican EdComm Agora Professional Learning event. Dr Marks is a former teacher and school principal. He is a consultant to the University of Melbourne’s Graduate School of Teacher Education, lecturing in the Master of Instructional Leadership programs. Dr Marks co-led research (with Dr Norman McCulla, Macquaire University) on the importance of trust in the Australian educative scene and co-authored the analysis of the Australian findings with Dr McCulla.*


Can we encourage you to consider both the LEAP Conference and LEAP peer-shadowing program as a part of your professional learning program.
