Date: Wednesday 6 - Friday 8 August 2014      
Location: Hobart, Hotel Grand Chancellor

Intended Audience: All school principals, school leaders, education leaders including those from Government, Independent, and Catholic sectors.

For quite some while now much of the developmental work we do as Principals has focussed on the business or corporate aspect of education, we thought it was time for a shift of emphasis – we think it is time for you to look at yourself as a reflective and passionate leader and educator, considering what is at the heart of school leadership and the principalship.

The 2014 Combined Tasmanian Principals Conference is exciting new territory, it's the first occasion that Principals and leaders from Government, Catholic and Independent schools across Tasmania have joined forces to provide focused professional learning within a conference setting for Tasmanian's school leaders and through the theme "The Heart of Leadership". We suspect it will be for the first time in a while that you have been asked to explore your passion as an educator.

We think this conference will be different, we are asking you to interact and participate, we want to both affirm and challenge your thinking, we want you to have time to really share your thinking and most importantly enjoy – conferences should be fun, as well as an opportunity for professional growth, collegial endeavours and self-reflection.
