Introduction to Leadership

Within the school community, there are many pathways to progress in your career and while each comes with unique expectations there are some common factors to these leadership roles. This workshop is designed for teachers who are aspiring to or have just been appointed to their first leadership role. It will cover the skills required when moving into a formal leadership position in a school. Key skills and insights you will gain from this workshop include:

  • How to effectively transition from teacher to a formal leadership role
  • Creating vision and direction for your teams
  • Ideas for building a team culture
  • Setting goals for yourself and the team you are leading.

 

Presented by Critical Agendas

Adam Kruger & Scott Rumble

Adam Kruger (Head of Mathematics Faculty, Wesley College, Glen Waverley) and Scott Rumble (Senior School Leader, Parkdale Secondary College) have been involved in mathematical professional development for a number of years. Both working in a number of roles from Mathematics Learning Area leaders, Numeracy Leaders, Curriculum Development, Year Level Coordinator, Senior School Leader, to Acting Assistant Principal (Senior School/Curriculum). They have also been Directors of the Casey and Cardinia Mathematics Network.

Both believe that teaching and leading with warmth and enthusiasm, looking at the personal interests and strengths of their students is a key to achieving great success. Their interest, experience, and expertise in educating students at all levels is reflected in their broad teaching and leadership career. Both are celebrated presenters who work extensively with students, teachers and organisations in areas of leadership, data analysis, numeracy and literacy development, effective feedback strategies, restorative justice practices, accelerated learning, building connections outside the classroom, creative and critical thinking, learning styles, multiple intelligences and cooperative learning.

Adam and Scott have presented on numerous occasions for a range of organisations and school associations with the main focus of developing change in the classroom. Their passion for teaching has been the main driver for developing a range of programs at their college. The student growth that is achieved not only within these programs but in their classrooms is undeniable proof that their hard work and a love of this profession are the building blocks of great success. Adam and Scott have recently began developing a book Teach like a STAR which will be the driving force behind using their popular STAR methodology and approach towards building positive change in the classroom.
