ACEL National Conference 2022
The ACEL 2022 National Conference is proudly presented in collaboration with the NSW Department of Education.

The Australian Council for Educational Leaders (ACEL), annual flagship national conference will be held in Sydney from 28-30 September 2022.

Our theme this year is Inspiring hope, leading our future. Never more have we needed such a sense of hope and belonging and an opportunity to cultivate meaningful connection throughout our profession. In a country as broad and diverse as Australia, this is an important opportunity for educators, students, educational leaders, researchers and policy makers to come together, across all educational settings, to share their vision for the future.

The program of the 2022 ACEL National Conference promises to be engaging, interactive and provocative, building on the premise that conferences don’t change schools and learning organisations. People who’ve made decisions at conferences, do.

Our conference sub-themes have been designed to both inspire hope and to equip us to lead our future:

  • Recovering our people
  • Redesigning for inclusion and equity
  • Repositioning school leadership
  • Reclaiming learning
  • Reshaping the future of schooling

The conference will include input sessions from key Australian and international experts, provocations to challenge our thinking and interactive sessions designed to build school-based actions post the conference. Concurrent sessions will also be held around the main conference theme, which will be explored more deeply through the five sub-themes.
