Understand the role risk management plays in driving strategic performance.

Risk Management is designed to further your ability to navigate through the strategic challenges of managing risks in your school and helps to identify and mitigate issues that challenge the achievement of its objectives.

Workshops are designed to establish risk management knowledge and skills and provide you with confidence and a practical appreciation of how it applies to your role.

Risk Management supports the 'Professional leadership' priority area of the Victorian Education State Framework for Improving Student Outcomes (FISO). 

Risk Management is Module 2 in the Strategic Management for School Leaders suite, which supports the Department of Education and Training's (Department) commitment to lifting the organisational performance of schools.
