A dynamic and interactive network for Teaching and Learning Leaders.

The network meets once a term and has a focus on maximising opportunities for leaders to learn from each other.


These network meetings will be held in The Development Centre at Independent Schools Victoria, with time given to:


  • what is new in teaching and learning
