About CPP

Champion change with evidence based practice.

Certified Practising Principal (CPP) is the world's only independent, professional certification for practising principals seeking to hone their leadership skills. It is open to principals from all school education sectors.

The certification process is rigorous and well researched. It is designed to support professional learning which improves professional practice. Principals walk away secure in the knowledge they are effective in leading school improvement and with an enhanced ability to think critically about their practice.

Principals are awarded certification in recognition of excellence in educational leadership - valuable accreditation to springboard a career. The CPP award is a formal endorsement that the candidate has demonstrated the Australian Principal Standard (AITSL, 2011) in action, based on evidence they have generated and presented themselves.
