Principals as Literacy Leaders (PALL)

PALL


The 2017 PALL Program is now full, we are no longer taking registrations. 

 

 

The Victorian Principals Association in conjunction with the Department of Education & Training are pleased to offer primary principal class the opportunity to be involved in one of the two ‘Principals as Literacy Leaders’ programs offered in 2017.


The purpose of PALL is to improve the literacy achievement of students through developing the capabilities of primary school principal class as effective literacy leaders. The objectives of the program are:

  1. 1. To examine school and system data for the purpose of evaluating performance and developing plans and strategies for improvement and sustainability of high levels of literacy achievement;
  2. 2. To lead the design and implementation of literacy improvement in participants’ schools;
  3. 3. To build a professional learning community for improving literacy in participants’ schools;
  4. 4. To contribute to literacy development from a system perspective. 

At the conclusion of the program your school should have developed a literacy intervention plan that aligns with your school strategic plan and AIP.


The program will be delivered in 5 modules with 10 hours of coaching provided throughout the year, as well as ongoing support and follow up activities after workshops. The follow up activities are undertaken by the principals with their communities supported by designated coaches.
