How can we shape an education for every student that engages them deeply in their learning and prepares them for the world beyond school?


This Systems Leadership Project aims to continue the emerging but highly promising work of a group of schools who have been exploring professional practices and new pedagogies, through AITSL that were aimed at increasing student engagement and improving learning outcomes.

The 2016 Systems Leadership Team is made up of committed educators who wish to further develop this work within a range of school contexts, as well as broaden the scale through including three additional schools in the community of practice. The focus of this project is not only on sharing highly effective practices across school contexts, but on engaging all teachers and leaders in developing new tools and approaches aimed at deepening student engagement and learning underpinned by four key Design Principles: connected, integrated, co-created and personalised learning.

Through the establishment of working parties within and across schools teachers will investigate innovative approaches through practitioner research. The three working parties will concentrate their investigations on: innovative ways of working, co-created and student engaged assessment and models of innovation and evidence collection.
