New board to be appointed to PAI

News Image

The current Principals Australia Institute (PAI) Board will resign on September 27th and the members, APPA and ASPA will appoint a new board of directors.

Prior to this APPA and ASPA as the members of PAI advised the PAI board to undertake the following actions:

  • Transfer the professional development offerings and resources where possible, to other similar organisations
  • Transfer Australian Principal Certification to another relevant organisation
  • Transfer the John Laing Awards for Professional Development to another organisation
  • Support PAI staff during the transition period and in the transfer of PAI PD services

10 PAI professional development products and resources have been divested to ACEL (the Australian Council for Educational Leaders) including Graduate and Grow, L5 Leadership and R3 resources and workshop content, as well as new offerings – Collective Efficacy and the Effective Educator PD. PAI’s Social and Emotional Learning topics – Conflict Resolution, Anger and Bullying have been divested to ASG (Australian Scholarships Group), their partner in this PD.

Australian Principal Certification has been divested to ACER (the Australian Council for Educational Research Ltd). Practising Principal Certification provides recognition of principals’ demonstration of the national principal standard for quality educational leadership, enables continuous leadership development and supports great educational outcomes for children and young people.

The John Laing Awards for Professional Development have been transferred to both APPA and ASPA, who will continue to recognise and celebrate the achievements of principals across all sectors and systems.
