Successful education systems have principals who are well connected to their peers through active partnerships or learning networks of schools. In Victoria, these learning networks are known as Communities of Practice.

The Communities of Practice approach means working together to deepen school-to-school collaboration and foster the opportunity for every principal to belong to a dynamic local network and engage in a community of practice.

This publication outlines how to embed a networked system of schools to powerfully lift the performance and achievement of all students.
