Our Programmes

Springboard Trust’s unique learning programmes are designed to enable the development of outstanding educational leaders.

To achieve this, we offer a range of wraparound services that provide multi-year support for school leaders’ strategy development and implementation.

Our integrated customer journey connects principals with our Strategic Leadership for Principals’ Programme and Alumni Network, which accelerates implementation and continues the PLD of school leaders.  

The benefits of participating in our programmes:  

  • Exposure to relevant strategic leadership thinking from outside the education sector. 
  • A high-trust environment where principals problem-solve together.  
  • Access to skilled resources to assist with the execution of high-priority, clearly defined, measurable strategic initiatives in schools. 

Strategic Leadership for Principals (SLPP)

A 10-month, free programme to develop robust strategic plans. Cohorts of six principals participate in regular facilitated planning workshops, where they receive individual support from senior leaders (skills volunteers) who provide guidance and external insight.

Alumni Network

After completing SLPP, alumni can access a suite of services that connect principals with best practices in change leadership and strategic implementation. Project-based activities involve a school’s leadership team and are supported by skills volunteers.
