Is there a professional learning culture? Is there:
 data and evidence of student work underpinning professional learning
 evaluation of professional learning occurring
 leaders supporting ongoing adult learning and risk taking
 collective responsibility for improving practice
 disciplined collaboration
 high levels of trust, interaction and inter-dependence
 structures, explicit planning and time; and
 alignment between performance, development and professional
learning activities?
... is to build other leaders and secure
the vision of the school to the
community.’ Joseph, 2013
