Leading Literacy

A key Education State target is to lift literacy levels by 25 per cent over the next five to ten years. Learn how to create and sustain the organisational conditions that enable exemplary literacy practice and achieve the Education State target in primary and secondary school settings.

​​​​ Leading Literacy gives you the tools, skills and knowledge to embed high quality literacy practice in your school by equipping your team with the skills to influence change across your school. In addition to the core program, you can choose at least one elective from the topics of reading, writing and vocabulary. Each elective is offered with a specific focus on literacy in either secondary or primary school settings.

Career Stage

Designed for individuals or vertical school teams. If attending as an individual you are invited to bring your school team to the elective workshops.

You are also required to select a workplace mentor who can provide support for your ongoing professional learning and application of the learning in the school.
