Butler College is one of the 798 schools in the Department of Education. The school is new and the culture is being defined, developed and supported. In 2014 the college engaged with education expert Dr Rashmi Watson, to create a long term whole school improvement plan named ‘Creating a Culture of Development & Continuous Learning’. The purpose of this initiative is to engage all staff in a professional development journey to achieve optimal success for individual, professional growth and for organisational growth.
Rashmi and Butler College engaged with iPREP to further progress the initiative. The team involved research students from University of Western Australia Nicolas Nagloo (animal biologist) and Janice Lim (epidemiologist), and Edith Cowan University’s Alex Zhang (accountant). The students used their research and analysis skills to assist with the expansion of the program.
