This unit addresses multiple dimensions associated with leading strategy and change, and workforce planning and development, within an education context. It undertakes a critical review of approaches to education leadership in the areas of strategic leadership and change management; building leadership teams; staff recruitment, selection and appointment; teacher attrition and retention; and workforce development and capacity building.

The unit highlights the sometimes-disparate relationship between theory and practice in each of these areas and the ways this might impact on the work of education leaders.

Students are encouraged to draw on unit resources to develop practical approaches to addressing matters relating to change management and workforce development in their current and potential future workplaces. There is an emphasis on the equity implications of staff employment and development.
