8 EMPOWER MODEL – Self Assessment SWOT analysis: Strengths Weaknesses Opportunities Threats SMART objectives: Specific Measurable Attainable Relevant Time-bound

9 SWOT Analysis – Example: Dimension A STRENGTHS CommunicationDim A1.3 – works very well within subgroups of teachers – informal verbal communication is sufficient for many purposes Processes Dim A1.1 – most of them work quite reasonably – some are exactly documented (registration for the Reifeprüfung, registration for mandatory electives etc.) Forms Dim A1.2 – hardcopies of all important forms available Instructions Dim A1.1 – available for some processes (e.g.handout for head teachers - winlehr-software, instructions for assessment tests for students who have been absent for a longer period of time etc.) – code of conduct, rules for IT rooms, library etc. WEAKNESSES Mission statement Dim A2.1 – does not exist School profile Dim A2.1 – outdated (website) Responsibilities Dim A2.1 – partly undefined (principle of voluntariness) OrganizationDim A1.2 – many organizational matters work quite well, therefore evaluation and improvement are not considered necessary – Innovations are met with reluctance (average age: 47,5): „Since everything is working now, innovations can only create more (unnecessary) work.” CommunicationDim A1.3 – lack of communication – effectiveness not evaluated – new forms of communication, e.g. MoK, are not accepted Documents Dim A1.2 – different versions Evaluation Dim A3 – Self-evaluation is not obligatory – no internal or external evaluation (no continuous improvement process) Midday care, after school care Dim A1 – Midday care: lack of written communication regarding organization, attendance lists etc. – teachers handle things differently, sometimes there is no staff member who feels competent to help teachers who substitute – Day care: cf. midday care, written information is available, but most information is given verbally

10 SWOT Analysis – Example: Dimension A OPPORTUNITIES Mission statement Dim A2.1 – written mission statement School profile Dim A2.1 – update of the school profile Communication Dim A1.3 – development and adaptation of the MoK in order to improve internal communication Documents and formsDim A1.2 – Design of clearly defined documents and forms (title, date, creator, filing), availability in the MoK – Creation of a school manual in order to facilitate working processes EvaluationDim A3 – evaluation of some aspects Midday care, after school care Dim A1.2 – provide written instructions and support THREATS Processes Dim A1.1 – work reasonably well – nobody feels that improvements are necessary – overregulation makes creative projects difficult CommunicationDim A1.3 – informal verbal communication is sufficient – nobody feels a necessity to define processes, let alone to comply with them – the transition from a system that works to one that is more regulated may lead to difficulties – Some teachers are „overstressed“ by new regulations („It’s always been like this….“) – not all of them follow them (e.g. new form for absences of one or more days that has to be submitted to the Vienna School Board) – new staff members do not have enough information – processes and necessary information are only communicated verbally Resistance Dim A1.3 – actual issues are not dealt with – pretended arguments are used as an excuse
