Springboard Trust invites school leaders to express their interest in the Strategic Leadership for Rural Teaching Principals Programme and Strategic Leadership for Principals Programme.
MoE PLD funding is required to secure a place in our programmes for 2023. Please contact us if this presents a barrier to your participation.

Improve your leadership
Springboard Trust's unique learning programmes are designed to enable the development of outstanding educational leaders who dramatically improve their schools and wider communities.
To achieve this, we offer a range of programmes and services that provide multi-year support for leaders. Over these years, principals partner with us on a journey to:
Learn or enhance their strategic leadership skills.
Connect with cross-sector partners for unique leadership insights.
Develop the tools and skills necessary to plan and report to boards and other stakeholders.
Build leadership capability throughout a school.
Map the impacts of strong leadership right down to student outcomes.
Network with other schools and sectors to improve the community.
Principals do not generally undertake every programme and service that Springboard offers. By partnering with Springboard and selecting programmes and services that are tailored to your needs, you broaden your skill set and bring yourself – and your leadership team – on a journey that alumni call "the best professional development you will ever get".
The Principal's Journey
Usually, the Principal's journey begins with one of our foundation programmes - the Strategic Leadership for Principals Programme (SLPP) or the Strategic Leadership for Rural Teaching Principals Programme (SLRTP). After this point, We'll work with you to understand your challenges and opportunities, and support you to select the best programme or service for your needs.
