The Western Australian Public School Principals’ Fellowship Program further extends the capabilities of school leaders in public education.
The program involves an extensive body of learning, mentoring and development. It includes two intensive Harvard University Graduate School of Education courses, one delivered in Boston, Massachusetts and one online. Principals participate in executive mentoring and active engagement in an area of system improvement.
The program is open to all school principals in public education.
On completion of the program, principals become fellows and form a pool of well-credentialed and highly skilled principals. They can be called on to be involved in specific reform activities, act as mentors to other principals and contribute to leadership development programs. This investment in school leadership is vital to delivering high quality teaching and enhancing student learning.
Sixty principals have been selected to participate in the program, 20 have completed the program and been inducted as Principal Fellows with a further 20 principals due to complete the program in 2018. A further 20 principals were recently selected for the 2018-19 program.
