Corporate Education course

UQ Business School Downtown, Level 19, Central Plaza One, 345 Queen Street, Brisbane.

The need to transform schools through effective leadership due to the complexity of the issues facing the sector, has highlighted the need for professional education and staff development. The challenge now facing many senior and middle managers is how to successfully combine the role of educational leader and institutional manager.
With specific education management topics, we focus in detail upon high quality leadership and development opportunities and in doing so provide a vehicle for those wishing to develop their leadership and management skills. This course combines theoretical perspectives on leadership, from outside of and inside of education, with practical school-based applications. Participants will gain a range of practical strategies that they can employ to improve their own leadership practices.
