  • Leadership in Catholic Schools Framework

    Development Framework and Standards of Practice  

    The Leadership in Catholic Schools:  Development Framework and Standards of Practice has been endorsed by the Catholic Education Commission of Victoria.  The initiative, funded by the Australian Government Quality Teacher Programme, was developed by the Catholic Education Offices in the Archdiocese of Melbourne and the Diocese of Sale, in partnership with the Australian Council of Education Research (ACER). 

    The development of the Framework was influenced by two major trends that have gathered momentum in a number of countries, including Australia, over the last ten to fifteen years.  The first was the growing recognition that new kinds of school leadership, centred on successful student learning, are now needed in schools; the second was the movement towards standards-based professional development and accountability, an 'agenda' that has now become strong in education as in other professions. 

      

    Overview

    Statement of Purpose

    The Leadership in Catholic Schools:  Development Framework and Standards of Practice aims to:

    • describe the complex work of leaders in Catholic schools;
    • support the work of leaders and aspiring leaders;
    • provide teachers with a professional learning guide as they work towards formal leadership positions;
    • form a basis for a system of assessment against the standards.

    The standards described within the Framework set out to capture a distinct set of agreed leadership practices for leaders in Catholic Schools.
