New initiatives involving access to targeted professional learning opportunities are needed to assist teachers who, at the mid-stage of their careers, report feeling ill-prepared for the challenges of taking on higher leadership roles within schools. This chapter briefly presents the design, implementation and evaluation of a successful professional learning initiative being undertaken in Canberra, Australia, titled the Curriculum Leadership Program (CLP): Transforming Teaching and Learning. The CLP program brings together an employer body, a university, guest presenters and participants focused on facilitating a deeper understanding of the transformative power of effective curriculum leadership on the establishment of quality teaching and learning practices in schools.
