Growing Great Leaders™ FLIPPED covers six modules. Each module is two hours and is aligned to the student-centred leadership model and is designed to provide both theoretical and practical application for the educational context.

MODULE 1: Student-centred Leadership

Module 1 introduces the ‘student-centred leadership’ model and challenges participants to reflect on their own leadership beliefs and practices as well as the impact of those beliefs and practices on student outcomes in their school. 

MODULE 2: Building Relational Trust

Module 2 highlights the influence of trust on the quality of student outcomes. Practical activities support personal reflection and subsequent trust-building action in participant’s own setting.

MODULE 3: Establishing Goals and Expectations

Module 3 provides highly practical insights into goal setting theory and supports participants as they reflect on the quality of goal setting in their own school. The module provides rich takeaways for back-in-school follow up and action.

MODULE 4: Resourcing Strategically

Module 4 highlights the important of being strategic in the use of limited school resources. The content supports participants as they undertake a critical review of the way their key resources, both human and material, are used to promote valued student outcomes.

MODULE 5: Solving Complex Problems

Module 5 is highly practical and supports participants as they progress a complex problem they are attempting to address. The module blends engaging research with high levels of participant interaction.

MODULE 6: Ensuring Quality Teaching

Module 6 challenges leaders to think about the way their beliefs about teaching quality influences both teacher actions and student outcomes. The session provides practical insights as well as a rich set of back-in-school, follow-up activities.
