Looking beyond knowledge-based skills for our newest emerging leaders Starting in 2022, the plan is to fast track a group of emerging leaders into Principalship. The government hopes that the strategy will be its answer to the lack of leadership depth in a system that is struggling to find teachers for teaching and leadership positions across the state.   Currently, the average time taken for an NSW teacher to transition to a Principal role is close to 20 years, with the new program identifying a 10-year fast track process, new leaders will be at the helm in less than half the time of those who have come before them. Given such a dramatic difference in preparation time, it is natural to wonder how these developing leaders will be ready to take on the complex nature of a leadership role in one of the many diverse schools across the state.
