Course Overview and Participants
The Language Leadership Schools Network (LLSN) is for school leaders who have previously been trained in the Language Leaderships Schools Series, Language Leadership Schools Network or worked as a Specialist Language Teacher in the LDC. The series will further enhance participants’ knowledge of language and literacy instruction and continue to support their leadership skills and whole school literacy planning. Participants attending the LLSN must work within either the North East Metropolitan or Wheatbelt Education District.
The LLSN is structured to include a balance between practice, theory, networking, action research and collaboration. Topics covered will build on previous content presented in the LLSS. All content is aligned with the WA Curriculum and recent research advances in visible learning and explicit instruction.
The LLSN consists of 3 compulsory Connection Days for Key Leaders, and 3 additional professional learning sessions of their choice.
The Connection Days
The Connection Days are comprehensive professional learning and networking days. These include updates on research and program development as well as new content from a range of sources. Guest speakers from education department and community based services for school age children will present on a range of topics related to language and literacy instruction, child development, and research. Connection Days will include regular opportunities for sharing and networking between participants and delegates. NEMLDC classroom and video observations will also be included across the series.
Additional Professional Learning
Enrollment in the LLSN entitles participants (or other staff members at their schools) access to 3 additional professional learning sessions across the year. Participants can select their own sessions from the NEMLDC PD Calendar (see here for options), based on interest and school priorities.
