Central to the Development Learning Framework for School Leaders is the iLead 360º survey which is a web based online tool that will enable teachers and school leaders to receive comprehensive feedback about their leadership from a range of individuals.
About the survey
The iLead 360° Survey complements the Development Learning Framework for School Leaders by providing a more accurate and rounded assessment of their leadership capacity. It recognises that leadership effectiveness is contingent on relationships at every level. Consequently, as well as rating themselves, the survey provides them with the opportunity to receive feedback from multiple sources including their peers, reporting staff and principal/manager.
The iLead 360° Survey is intended to assist teachers and school leaders to reflect upon their leadership practice, identify strengths and areas for improvement, map key factors that effect their professional development, assist in setting professional learning goals, and inform the development of their professional learning plan. Survey results should be used to enhance conversations about leadership development and invoke and enrich dialogue linked to performance and development reviews.
The iLead 360˚ Survey tool offers two surveys:
iLead 360˚ Survey - Self Assessment Survey (SAS)
