The School Improvement Unit (SIU) offers training to principals and associate school leaders about the National School Improvement Tool (NSIT) and school reviews.
These training sessions are a great way for school leaders to learn more about how the NSIT can be used to improve outcomes for students.
The SIU's fact sheet provides an overview of the training program. For further details, see below.
Training for principals
Training for principals is held over two days. Principals who complete the training can nominate to become a peer reviewer. As a peer reviewer, principals have the opportunity to join a review team, take part in a full school review and see how other schools operate and what learnings could be applied to their school community.
Training for associate leaders
Training for associate leaders is held over one day. The training is open to deputy principals, heads of curriculum, heads of department, heads of special education services, literacy and numeracy support teachers, master teachers, coaches and lead teachers. This training is designed to develop capacity of associate leaders in understanding the NSIT and provides participants with an opportunity to learn how the NSIT can guide improvement within their school.
There is no cost for training. However, regions may charge your school a small fee to cover the cost of venue hire and catering.
How to register

A helpful introductory course about the NSIT and the department’s school reviews is also available on the Learning Place website (accessible to DET staff only).
