Welcome to the TAS Branch of ACEL.
Imagine a community of educators, genuinely committed to working together to improve educational outcomes for young Tasmanians. That’s what ACEL Tasmania is. It’s led by an enthusiastic Branch Executive with a breadth of experience in educational leadership across government, Catholic and independent schools and administrations, including early childhood to university. This cross-sectoral perspective, particularly in a reasonably small state, serves us well. We recognise the opportunity our size offers and the importance of our professional networking across our Island State.
When you come to an ACEL event you will notice the warm welcome you receive. ACEL is a place for all committed educators: those who are experienced and those just starting out; those in positions of leadership as well as the teacher leader in the classroom. Whether you’re a born-and-bred Tasmanian or new to the State, if you are committed to evidence-based practice and collaborating with colleagues, ACEL Tasmania has much to offer you.
One of the challenges of ACEL is to ensure it is delivering to all members, regardless of their location. The raft of online resources, which is constantly being enhanced provides great support for all leaders. So too, do the Twitter discussions that occur each time Perspectives is published: #ACEL. Our journal, Australian Educational Leadership, is available online and ACEL has just released Resources in Action. Keep an eye on the website for notice of National events, our Tasmanian Hot Topics events and our annual Awards Evening. Our Tasmanian Executive embraces the challenge of serving a State-wide membership.
We look forward to seeing you at an ACEL event in the near future.
