The two year program positions the principals to play a major role in leading change and improvement in their schools as well as across the public school system to deliver enhanced educational outcomes for students and the wider community.

It provides them with the opportunity to:

  • learn from the world’s best educators
  • work alongside innovative leaders and entrepreneurs
  • share educational research and best practice
  • develop a network of international connections
  • advance their leadership skills to benefit their schools
  • contribute to leadership and reform in our system.

The program involves a partnership with Harvard University’s Graduate School of Education in Cambridge, Massachusetts. It combines powerful learning opportunities with a range of unique leadership roles in 2016 and 2017.

The fellowship program places Western Australian principals at the forefront of innovation by learning from and networking with some of the world’s finest educational minds.

Nominations for 2016 are now closed.

A second opportunity for up to 20 principals will be offered in 2017.

The program will be reviewed in 2018 to assess its impact and sustainability.
