Expressions of interest open for 2023 strategic leadership programmes!
Springboard Trust is excited to welcome expressions of interest from across Aotearoa for our 2023 strategic leadership programmes – the Strategic Leadership for Principals Programme (SLPP), and the Strategic Leadership for Rural Teaching Principals Programme (SLRTP). Express your interest here! Since 2007, Springboard Trust’s unique cross-sector model has supported the development of principals’ strategic leadership and planning skills, partnering them with experienced volunteer leaders from outside the education sector. Principals work with other educator-volunteer pairings under the guidance of an expert facilitator and the Springboard Trust team. Through this high-trust partnership, we deliver a fresh lens, tools and frameworks to effect positive change in schools and wider communities while delivering profound personal and professional development for school leaders. Over 10 months, each participant works with their key stakeholders to hone the vision for their school’s future and co-construct a 3-year strategic plan (including a 1-page version!) that will create the conditions for all learners to thrive. Time and time again, principals tell us that learning with Springboard Trust is, put simply, the best professional learning and development they have ever done – and we’re excited to welcome another intake of passionate school leaders in 2023.
