Course content

This online programme is designed to enable those in key roles in the education sector to develop and advance their leadership knowledge and practice to influence and lead change in local, national and global contexts, in strategic, flexible and agile ways.

  • The programme is designed to provide leaders with the conceptual understandings and application to practice that will enable them to develop expertise in innovative leadership approaches, including transformative and sustainable leadership and system-level leadership.
  • A key feature is to support leadership capacity and capability building at an individual, group or organisational level.
  • You will have the opportunity to meet and network with your counterparts during an intensive three-day study weekend.
