Tasmanian Combined Principals Conference 2017
We are pleased to announce the Tasmanian Combined Principals Conference 2017 will be held at Blundstone Arena, in Bellerive, Tasmania, Australia, from 9 to 11 August 2017.
This conference is presented in partnership by the Tasmanian Principals Association, the Catholic Education Office, and Independent Schools Tasmania. It continues the collaboration in professional learning established by the APPA national conference held in Hobart in 2016.
Leading Today For Tomorrow
Welcome to Leading Today for Tomorrow, a conference for educational leaders to be held in Hobart, 2017.
Tasmanian Combined Principals Conference has the intention of building on that which Tasmania does best – increasing principal networks and building long term support structures between you and your colleagues. The conference design will specifically enable you to:
- Have structured sessions to meet and share with colleagues
- Be a part of a home group to discuss conference sessions and their applicability to you in your school situation
- Establish long term support networks
The theme has been developed to capture some of the complex dimensions of leadership which can become lost in the day to day urgency of the principalship. We will focus on three themes: leading learning; addressing inequality and; management.
Contemporary education is full of challenge and opportunity.
We will be challenged by educators and social leaders Professor Chris Sarra and David Adams. We will challenge each other as we identify issues, work on strategic directions and share our experiences and pathways in leadership.
There is something unique about this conference, too. Find out about that as we are led on what will be a most stimulating conference facilitated by Brett Manion from the Professional Learning Institute and eminent Tasmanian educator Bob Phillips.
A ten minute drive from Hobart’s city centre, Blundstone Arena is conveniently located on Hobart’s eastern shore. If coming from the city, follow the signs to Bellerive on the Tasman Bridge.
Limited parking is available near the entrance to the Blundstone Arena. There is free parking in Derwent, Church, Park, Beach and Douglas Streets.
A variety of sponsorship packages are being offered. We also invite any new proposals you may wish to put forward; the Committee is happy to negotiate a package that will be of maximum benefit to your organisation and the conference. Visit the sponsors page for more information.
