Strategic leadership involves setting the direction of the school, identifying challenges and areas of need, establishing goals and a plan to achieve them, and bringing the school community along. It is important that schools are engaged in continual improvement and it is job of strategic leaders to drive this work.
There is a range of research from both school and organisational literature on the importance and attributes of strategic leadership. The school-based research evidence suggests that, while strategic leadership is important, its impact on student learning outcomes is not as great as instructional leadership.
Strategic leadership involves setting the direction for the school, establishing annual goals that are centred on the students and their learning, setting targets, and taking action. It also is important that strategic leaders monitor their progress towards the established goals and targets.

The Education Hub's mission is to bridge the gap between research and practice in education. We want to empower educators to find, use and share research to improve their teaching practice, and then share their innovations. We are building the online and offline infrastructure to support this to improve opportunities and outcomes for students.
