Welcome to NTPA

Welcome to the Northern Territory Principals’ Association (NTPA). As the voice of school leadership in the NT, we represent the interests of principals, assistant principals from all schools across the NT.

We work collegially and collaboratively to promote leadership and learning to create better outcomes for all students, in our schools and communities, regardless of geography and socio economic circumstances. Principals are the forefront in this work.

We understand that when principal leadership is strong, even the most challenged schools can thrive. Therefore, the NTPA seeks to enhance the quality of educational leadership and to influence the direction of the NT educational agenda. We believe we can achieve our purpose by:

  • supporting members to grow professionally and personally throughout their leadership journey
  • effectively representing members in educational policy development and implementation:
  • advocating for education and whole school leadership.

We will continue to learn and grow as we enhance our diversity, build our resilience, and excel in our fields.  I look forward to working with and advocating for our great Territory principals.
