About Principals Australia Institute

Principals Australia Institute (PAI) is a leading national services organisation providing quality professional learning, leadership development and principal certification to Australia’s school leaders.
With an established network across the country, PAI delivers key frameworks, programs and services to all schools and systems in Australia's cities and regions.
PAI has extensive experience in supporting the social and emotional health and wellbeing of children in thousands of Australian schools, through its history in delivering the Australian Government-funded KidsMatter Primary and MindMatters frameworks. PAI has been instrumental in the development and delivery of these frameworks since their inception, and continues to provide alternative whole-school mental health and wellbeing support.
Through its relationships and connections across the education sector, PAI assists school leaders to achieve the best possible outcomes for themselves, their staff and their students, through ongoing professional development services and learning.
PAI provides a voice in the areas of school leadership, professional development services and Australian Principal Certification, to help raise the profile and reputation of principals in the community.
