The Brooker Education Team recognises that leaders in this sector are grappling with significant issues. They have been forced to adapt their teaching and learning structures, technological platforms, professional development frameworks, and student reporting methodologies to cater for today’s challenges. High expectations from government, funding institutions, the business sector and relevant governance bodies have not abated and the need to compete in a global sense to attract teaching talent and students all highlight the need for strong, values based leadership.

We have proven experience recruiting for medical collegestertiary institutions, TAFEs and independent schools.

With candidate care ratings that are consistently above industry norms and client relations which are second to none, we understand the processes and sensitivities associated with satisfying stakeholders, while at the same time providing quality outcomes.

Brooker Consulting engages and retains communications with Board Chairs, other education leaders and operational managers across the sector to keep abreast of pressure points, emerging trends and key risk areas. 

We look forward to partnering with you to identify and attract diverse leaders with the right mix of experience and future skills for your organisation.
