Enhance professional and societal perspectives through the Institute for Professional Learning

INsight is open to all staff currently employed by the Department of Education WA and will offer a range of events and activities that focus on community and education. Knowledge and experience of the broader environment will build capacity to lead and manage societal changes as they affect schools and their students.

Join us for breakfast on Thursday 18 June with Professor Bruce Robinson from The Fathering Project.

A second event, Growth Mindsets with James Anderson, will give you an overview of what it means to think like a Growth Mindset teacher and will be held Tuesday 21 July at 4.15pm at the Institute.

For more information and to register for either, or both, events click here.


We grow leaders

I have undertaken a number of professional learning programs through the Institute that have supported and enhanced my career development from teacher through to principal.  The Aspirant School Leader Program gave me a comprehensive introduction to change management and leading teaching and learning. The reflection and collaboration in the program enabled me to plan for areas of growth, both personally and within the school setting.

I successfully secured a funded place in the Master of School Leadership program and I am currently engaged in the Institute’s Executive Leadership Program which is consolidating and extending my leadership capabilities. I would highly recommend the Institute’s targeted leadership programs to all aspiring and established school leaders.
