Learning Network

The Learning Network is an effective leadership development program that supports leadership teams to improve overall school achievement and to close achievement gaps through targeted improvement of learning and teaching.

Schools are encouraged to participate in the Learning Network, as it fulfills part of their academic grant requirements and has proven to be beneficial to schools.  We are asking that each school provide a coach who will be the head of the team. We still expect the team to consist of 3-4 people from your school. 

*Please note that once you register your team for the first Learning Network in August, your team will not need to register again as we expect the team to stay the same.
