The program will look at:

Women are a significant majority of the teaching profession and of the education workforce. Yet it is rarely the case that women occupy the majority of leadership roles in education. This raises a number of interesting questions:

  1. Are there barriers that prevent some women moving into leadership?
  2. Is leadership perceived by some as the domain of men?
  3. Is the way in which formal leadership is exercised in schools designed in a way that better suits men than women?
  4. Do women exercise leadership in different ways to men?
  5. How do women attain leadership positions and can they support each other to move into leadership roles?
This course will explore some of these questions as a way of coming to a more complete understanding of leadership and also explore how to build a network for support and mentoring.

The course is open to both women and men.
