ACER supporting CPPMore about ACER and CPP
In August 2018, the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER) took up the exciting opportunity to on board administration of the CPP award. ACER and CPP share a mission: improving professional practice using an evidence based approach. Candidates undertaking CPP will have access to ACER's resources and support networks. ACER's international research credentials mean principals can be assured that the experience is world-class.
"The vision established for CPP is unchanged – to deliver system improvement and improved educational outcomes by building and sustaining the leadership expertise of principals and to enhance the attractiveness of school leadership as a career."
