Pre-Conference Online Event: Equitable Excellence with Professor Scott Eacott

Join our Webinar ‘Equitable Excellence’ for a discussion led by Professor Scott Eacott from University of New South Wales.

Issues of equity and excellence dominate high-level education policy discussions. What they mean for those grappling with the day-to-day challenges of running a school remains somewhat elusive. In this SASPA Webinar we take a dive into what it means to pursue equitable excellence at the school level.
To do this, there will be an initial provocation of what the system looks like from outside and then a series of deep dive discussions focused on four key questions:

  • What does equity actually mean?
  • How do you know how equitable outcomes are in your school?
  • What do you need to know that you currently do not?
  • How does this scale across the system?

These discussions will work from the system to the school and back again as we seek to develop contextually sensitive ideas of equity and excellence focused on how to build cultures of sustainable continuous improvement where staff and students thrive.
