Principals' Conference 2019

Federation invites all principals to the 2019 Principals’ Conference. The conference will take place on Monday 4th March, at Federation House in Surry Hills.

Keynote speaker will be Pasi Sahlberg - Finnish educator, author, and scholar. Professor Sahlberg is a Finnish educator and author who has worked as school teacher, teacher educator, researcher, and policy adviser in Finland and has studied education systems, analysed education policies, and advised education reforms around the world. He has written and spoken widely about these topics and is currently a professor of education policy at the Gonski Institute for Education, University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia.

Workshops will be registered PL with NESA and participants will be able to select a number of sessions to attend based on their personal context and interest. Topics will include:

  • Trauma Informed Education
  • Leading Aboriginal Education
  • The Principal’s Role in Having Difficult Conversations
  • Dealing with the risks of violent and aggressive behaviour as work health and safety issues
  • Performance and Development and Teacher Improvement
  • The Future of Curriculum in NSW
  • Small Schools / Environmental Education Centres
  • Supporting Beginning Teachers in Gaining Accreditation at Proficient Teacher

The conference will provide an opportunity to explore and seek advice on these topics, discuss emerging school-based issues and network with colleagues.

This is a Trade Union Training event. TP1/TP2 school principals may request assistance for relief. Unfortunately, it is not possible, due to the large numbers and costs, to provide relief for all participants.

Federation will book and cover the cost of travel and/or accommodation for those members who live outside of Sydney, in line with our Travel and Accommodation policy. Those members who require travel and accommodation need to complete this part of the booking form and be aware that due to the significant costs in rebooking flights, Federation has implemented a policy whereby costs associated with changes to flights for personal reasons will be borne by the individual.

If you have questions about the conference or travel/accommodation arrangements, please contact Trade Union Training on 02 9217 2460.

Federation encourages all principal members to attend this important conference.

    Completing the Principals Conference will contribute 3 hours of NESA Registered PD addressing 6.2.2, & 7.4.2 from the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers towards maintaining Proficient Teacher Accreditation in NSW.
