Our schools are the incubators of our future leaders. It's essential that they're governed well.
A school council has particular functions in setting and monitoring the school's direction. They play an integral role in shaping our future society.
Despite this, our research has shown the school councils are not receiving the levels of training and help required for such an important job for society's future.
This week, we start a journey of providing practical support and governance training for the people who power Australia's school councils.
It begins with our training workshop, Better Governance for Schools, held in Brisbane on Thursday.
But that's just the start, later this year we will release our new book, Damn Good Advice for School Councillors, in partnership with CommBank.
We're looking forward to providing you with the tools and resources needed to effectively govern our schools.
ICDA brings our half-day school-council training course, Better Governance for Schools, to Brisbane.
Tailored training programs can also be designed and delivered to meet your needs, location and budget. Learn more
