Example of identification of criterion


Reflection on practice

Professional development is provided.


Note: each of the criteria will need to be considered given the integrated nature of distributed leadership.  The order for such will depend on the particular focus.


In each project professional development was provided through a mix of training workshops; mentoring and facilitation and proactive encouragement by formal leaders.
