Last week I attended a PD focused on applying and interviewing for leadership positions in Victoria, Australia. The presenter, Helen Rix is an education consultant and facilitator. I’d like to thank Helen for an excellent day. Helen challenged my thinking, ensured I reflected and recognised my past, a school’s past, my present, my future and a school’s future. If you’re not sure what this means please leave a comment.
The following questions were asked. How would you answer?

What are my strongest attributes as a teacher?
What contribution will I make as a leader?

What have you done, thought and planned that points to your capacity for leadership?
Why are you teaching?
Why are you applying for a leadership position?
What are the beliefs you hold about your profession that sustain you when you are under pressure?
