About the webinar

Why attend?

Join fellow education leaders as we discuss the strategies, tactics and solutions for creating high performance cultures by outlining ways to improve practices and processes in five key areas:

1. Culture and performance (teacher motivation)
Like most people, research shows that educators are happiest and at their best the more time they’re able to spend on what they love — teaching. In fact, “endless admin and less actual teaching” are cited as some of the fundamental reasons behind educators exiting the profession.

2. Focus on outcomes, not processes
Resource constraints are omnipresent factors in the operation of any school and day-to-day lives of educators. Empowering staff to focus on learning outcomes and results, rather than completing tasks or covering content, is paramount.

3. Parent engagement
Research shows that one of the most effective ways to create a focused and supportive learning environment is to ensure parents are fully-engaged members of your school community.

4. Continuous feedback
To enable your school to foster a culture of continuous improvement, you need to adopt methods for gathering and implementing regular feedback from key stakeholders — parents, students and staff.

5. Access and equity for all learners
To create an environment where every student is viewed as a potential high-achiever, you need to adopt practices that ensure all students have equal opportunities to excel.
