Content

This unit introduces considerations for planning, executing, monitoring and reviewing strategic direction in schools. Strategic plans in education are context dependent, take account of school-based goals for improvement in teaching and learning, and embrace broader political, economic and education policy imperatives. They are both influential in and responsive to short-term and long-term local needs and aspirations as well as external requirements. This unit also investigates research on leading and managing major change. First and second order change, issues such as resistance to change, strategies to ensure successful change and case studies of experiences in change management will be discussed.
