Effective Leadership for Health & Physical Education Coordinators - Leadership in a time of Innovation and Change

HPE leaders recognise the importance of preparing their students for the future. As educators we need to provide students with the knowledge, skills and understandings to thrive in the rapidly changing world. Research identifies the need for schools and students to change the way learning occurs.

Leadership is an important part of the process of changing the way that learning occurs. Given that we are in a period of almost constant educational reform and restructuring and where disruption in the norm then the role of HPE and the leadership of this area is critical.

This seminar supported HPE leaders and those aspiring to leadership roles in schools to work more effectively across their schools and Partnerships/Cluster.
