Educational Leaders Summit 2010
Do you have an outstanding emerging leader in your school? Are
you mentoring an aspiring principal?
Now is your opportunity to invest in their development.
ACEL is excited to announce the launch of a new signature program
for emerging leaders which is specifically designed to equip and
inspire the next generation of educational ‘change agents.’ The pro-
gram will be chaired by Simon Breakspear, ACEL’s Learning Partner
for ACEL’s Emerging Leaders Strategy in collaboration with leading
international scholars and practitioners in the field of educational
leadership and change.
The Summit will gather a ‘tribe’ of one hundred of the most innova-
tive and inspirational emerging educators (thirty five years old or
younger) from across the Commonwealth for two days of collabora-
tion, leadership development and exposure to the most innovative
educational ideas on the planet.
The Emerging Leaders Summit will be an intensive and customised
leadership development experience. Working with leading academ-
ics including Professors Andy Hargreaves, Frank Crowther and Patrick
Duignan and senior and experienced practitioners from the field,
participants will be equipped with the capabilities and confidence to
influence their peers, school and system. Participants will develop the
self-awareness, and leadership capabilities necessary for being effec-
tive change agents in a range of educational contexts.
The Summit will provide a unique opportunity for high-potential
teachers and leaders to build collaborative partnerships with others
from across Australia. This new professional community will form a
platform for the participants’ ongoing development, support and in-
spiration beyond the formal program.
Learning Design of the Summit
All learning will be grounded in the reality of the practical change that
participants are seeking to drive in their schools and communities. It
aims to prepare leaders to be action-orientated and future focused.
The curriculum for the Summit is built on the theoretical foundation
of the ACEL Leadership Capability Framework.
All participants will have the opportunity to complete an on-
line assessment of their current leadership capabilities. You will
receive a personalised feedback report that will highlight both
areas of leadership strength and areas for future focus and de-
Participants will engage in conversations with emerging leaders
throughout the Commonwealth through various social media
Two Day Summit Immersion Experience:
This tailored two day program will take participants through a pro-
cess of leadership discovery and development. Sessions will be
highly interactive and aim to draw out the experiences, perspectives
and opinions of all participants through a dynamic combination of
keynotes and collaborative sessions. There is a ‘No Boring Sessions’
guarantee and plenty of time built-in for rich conversations with like-
minded educational thought leaders.
