|Subject Overview:||This subject explores Educational Leadership, with a special focus on leadership for school and systemic transformation. Adopting Caldwell 's view, transformation is considered to be significant, systematic and sustained change that results in high levels of achievement for all students in all settings taking account of the particular circumstances in different settings. The Leadership Framework developed in the subject provides a conceptual tool to consider school and systemic transformation and includes seven dimensions: moral imperative; personal competence; strategic vision; teaching and learning; developing people; developing the organisation; and systemic and social justice. The style of leadership examined here has evolved in response to the adaptive challenge of system change, which demands new ways of thinking and operating. Mobilising people to meet adaptive challenges is at the heart of leadership practice. Adaptive work requires reflection on moral purposes, and demands deep reflective enquiry into the realities that threaten the realisation of those purposes.|
