New Directions Submission

We plan to submit a response to the Government on their discussion paper; New Directions for School Leadership and the Teaching Profession.  

This submission will concentrate on empowering teachers around the areas of:
  • Building on teacher training and attracting high quality teachers to the profession
  • Establish a culture of excellence with the profession
  • Promote leadership and support principals
It will focus on what should be priorities for the Government and what is missing from the discussion paper.
