AITSL 360° Reflection Tool

Connect with the Australian Professional Standard for Principals and gather formative feedback on your leadership behaviours.

The AITSL 360° Reflection Tool provides Senior Education Improvement Leaders (SEIL), principals and assistant principals the opportunity to connect with the Australian Professional Standard for Principals and gather formative feedback on the leadership behaviours they exhibit in their daily work.

The 360° Reflection Tool allows school leaders to: 

  • reflect on their leadership capacity
  • learn more about their strengths
  • better understand and explore opportunities for improvement
  • monitor change in their leadership behaviour and actions
  • use feedback to reflect on and develop a leadership action plan
  • compare their results with those of other Australian school leaders.

The survey itself takes approximately 45 minutes to complete. The whole process takes approximately 6 weeks. The first week is used to set-up your profile. The survey is then open for the next 4 weeks to allow your raters to complete the survey. The last week is used to compile the results, create and send your report to you.

School Leader Self-Assessment Tool

If you’re a non-principal class school leader, AITSL offers a School Leader Self-Assessment Tool (SAT) which helps you to identify your strengths, locate your leadership practice and plan your development.  

The assessment can be used as an initial starting point for informal purposes of self-reflection and to set career goals or for formal purposes such as annual performance review or certification.

The School Leader SAT complements a range of interactive resources to support the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers, Certification and the Framework developed by AITSL.
