Theory and Practice Sessions

Our Theory and Practice sessions are all being delivered concurrently, so principals are asked to select one of each session on each day of the conference during the registration process.

Some of these Concurrent sessions are being repeated across the two days. This will enable delegates to attend these sessions across the two days.

It is recommended that principals (in consultation with their school leadership and improvement teams) identify which sessions most closely align with the work they are leading in their schools.

Changing Theory and Practice Sessions

After registering should you like to change your Theory and Practice session selections please contact Conference Works with your new selections. Please note any changes will be subject to session space availability at the time. Sessions can be changed prior to Friday 20 May 2022.


For those delegates attending the Conference in-person at Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre the registration fee can be paid as part of the registration process.

You are able to elect to pay the fee via a credit card or ‘Please send me an Invoice’. If you select ‘Please send me an Invoice’ a tax Invoice will be emailed to you. Please ensure the invoice is sent to your Accounts Payable team.

If you need assistance while registering please feel free to contact Conference Works or 03 9870 2611
