Leading in Asia literacy

Jennifer Ure

To support school leaders, the Asia Education Foundation has developed the Leading 21st Century Schools: Engage with Asia (L21CS) professional learning program, in partnership with Principals Australia and other peak principals' organisations. L21CS aims to build awareness of the current and future global significance of Asia and the need for Australia to engage with the region. L21CS supports the implementation of key national policies on Asia, including the Australian Curriculum, and also supports the development of a whole-school approach that will ensure the development of sustainable Asia-literate policy and programs. The article looks at a case study of the implementation of L21CS at a small primary school. It describes the principal's experiences of the program, and the way it acted as a catalyst for further action on Asia literacy.
