School Leadership

The challenge: Are our school leaders properly equipped?

School leadership is at critical leverage point for school system improvement. Our hypothesis is that the education system requires a talent pipeline of school leaders that are better prepared for the complex role of leading the improvement required to lift student performance. 

Menzies Foundation reply:

Launched in 2018, The Menzies School Leader Fellowship Program is a dynamic incubator process that capitalizes individual, school, cohort and system level leadership and aspires to develop scalable systemic leadership interventions to improve student learning outcomes.

The Fellowship is led by a multi-sector collaboration comprised of school leaders, their school and corporate, philanthropic and university partners.

The Program aims to:

  • Delineate the talent pipeline required to improve student performance at a whole of system level and the leadership development platform to support this
  • Build the tools, techniques and frameworks required to scale leadership development program insights across the system
  • Identify best practice in Collective Efficacy in schools
