For the very first time, 13 students undertaking the Faculty of Education’s Master of Leadership at The University of Western Australia (UWA) are embarking on an international study tour to England to learn about school leadership from some of the country’s most influential educational leaders and policymakers. Students will be visiting a selection of six primary schools and leading institutions including the London Institute of Education, St John’s College, Oxford University, National College for Teaching and Leadership, Nottingham University and Durham University.
UWA has had an association with Durham University since 2001 through the Performance Indicators in Primary Schools program (PIPS). This program was developed by the Centre for Evaluation and Monitoring (CEM) at Durham University and is administered by UWA to registered schools in all states and territories of Australia to assist with assessing the progress of students entering Pre-Primary.
On returning, participants are required to produce a report of insights from visits, interactions with colleagues, and relevant literature as well as plans on how they will apply their learnings to the professional workplace.
