– I like the plan, touch base with me next week
and we can find a time to meet. Okay. Bye. No more calls June, I’m
with the video people. Principals work in an
increasingly complex, challenging, Have either of you thought about it from the parents’ perspective? And ever changing environment. Mine. Learning to lead a school and learning to lead a
school more effectively, requires a clear
understanding of what it takes to build great teaching. And see young people thrive. That’s where AITSL’s
leadership profiles can help. Come on don’t just stand there, this way. The leadership profiles
have been developed directly from the Australian Professional Standard for Principals. To describe in detail
what school principals are expected to know, understand and do to succeed in their work. A set of 80 leadership action statements are arranged in increasing proficiency. They describe the work of
principals at all levels of experience and no
matter what their context. I said no calls June. These 80 statements are organised through a choice of three lenses. “The Professional Practises” Lens details the five practises
of the principal profession. “The Leadership Requirements”
Lens expresses the three common qualities
of all good leaders. “The Leadership Emphasis”
Lens describes four approaches of principles
depending on their career stage, capability and context. Now here’s how to get started. First decide whether to
look at the statements through a professional practise,
leadership requirement, or emphasis lens. You can read more about each lens by clicking the information button. Next, select a focus from that lens and click or drag it
to the core focus box. This will create a profile of statements that relate to that focus. As you move down your profile, the statements will describe the actions that effective school leaders implement as they increase in proficiency. To give an example, if you
were to select the profile for “leading the management of the school” you can see that while
some principals allocate resources effectively to maintain the day to day operations of the school. More proficient principals will, “share best management
practise” and use of resources with other schools in
the educational networks. You can easily refine your profile further by adding an additional focus. Perhaps you’re engaging in working with the community in your school. You might like to add a focus from the “Leadership Requirements Lens.” To see the personal qualities and social and interpersonal skills that
you will need to draw on, as you carry out this work. Selecting this additional focus will highlight statements in the profile for your core focus that are
also shared by the added focus. Profiles from the
“Leadership Emphasis Lens” reflect the context in which
school leaders operate. So this lens doesn’t show
increasing proficiency. Instead, it describes
the actions of a leader as they adopt an operational, relational, strategic or systemic emphasis. There are always times we
principals need to be operational. But the profiles remind us that with more experience
comes greater capacity to shape relationships,
strategies and systems. Once you’ve explored your profile you can click through to
the black resources arrow To access a list of resources targeted to support your professional
growth in that area. You can save a link to those resources with the “my folder” option. Once you’ve registered
on the AITSL website. You can even save these
resources for future visits. Which is handy if you’re as busy as I am. I don’t even have time to blink. If you’d rather work offline, then click the “download
your profile” button. Here you can save the profile
you’ve created as a PDF. With the Interactive Leadership Profiles it’s possible to capture the
many and varied practises and requirements of your role. And to take a step up on the pathway to more effective leadership. I’ll take that call now June. Discover the true power of
