Partnering with you to support school improvement in your context

The AIS School Improvement Service is an evidence-based tailored service that supports participating independent schools to identify and then build capacity across critical elements of effective school improvement. It offers participating schools the opportunity to form a professional partnership with an experienced AIS consultant, a partnership that will be fluid and responsive to the strengths and needs of each school when reviewing, refining or developing their school improvement strategies. 

This service operates under a generous co-contribution model where participating schools are able to access a wide range of support while committing both time and the sustained effort of a leadership team to the initiative.

AIS School Improvement Service Events

During October and November 2017 AISNSW facilitated six metropolitan and regional school improvement professional learning days.

By the end of the series, over 350 NSW independent school leaders had participated in a day of learning at various locations throughout NSW.

The focus at each event was on learning, team collaboration and inter-school networking as participants considered school improvement research, key processes and transfer to context specific practice.

Similar events will be held in October and November 2018 at:

Hunter Valley
Sydney (CBD)
Sydney (South West)
Wagga Wagga

Details of these events will be available soon. If your school is interested in partnering with the AIS School Improvement Service, please contact:
