We're honoured to receive an ACEL Leadership Award, alongside the Victorian Association of State Secondary Principals and New South Wales Secondary Principals Council, for our work on the Paradigm Shifters: Entrepreneurial learning in schools initiative. We have received the award for designing collaborative, powerful and innovative research informed learning for students from 21 secondary schools in Victoria and New South Wales. 

The ACEL Leadership Award is presented annually to individual and teams of educators, schools, networks, and professional associations who have demonstrated excellent leadership in developing and implementing a significant education initiative, conducting research or influencing educational policy, leading to improved outcomes for students and/or colleagues in any educational setting. 

We would like to thank everyone involved in the Paradigm Shifters: Entrepreneurial learning in schools initiative, in particular:

The award will be conferred on Thursday 5 October at the ACEL 2017 National Awards Ceremony.
