The Middle Leadership Imperative


Middle leaders are those who have an acknowledged leadership position but are also involved in teaching in the classroom.

Middle leaders practice their leading close to the ‘hot site’ of education – the classroom.

A four-day professional learning opportunity for Assistant Principals addressing the three key themes of middle leading, collaborative professionalism and ideas in action.

The middle leader has become increasingly more important to the work of schools through increased accountability and responsibility of principals (Dinham 2016). The role of the middle leader is evolving with specific purpose in facilitating collegial professional learning and in the development of quality student learning (Ronnerman 2014). However, ambiguity still exists in relation to what middle leaders are expected to do (Fluckiger et al 2005).
