Springboard Trust is a charitable trust working within the education sector. We help develop capacity and capabilities of school leaders in strategic leadership and we achieve this by bringing together leaders from the education, private, public and philanthropic sectors to facilitate insightful learning and embed impactful change.
The reason we do this is simple: we believe that effective school leadership transforms schools which ultimately improves student outcomes.
Underpinning our portfolio delivery is our unique cross-sector model which gives principals the building blocks of strategic leadership, providing them with a diverse toolkit of resources to effectively lead their school and create the conditions that enable students to thrive.
Bringing the best from both worlds
New Zealand teachers and principals typically struggle to gain access to professional learning and development or unique insights from outside their own sector. Springboard Trust aims to break down these barriers and facilitate a unique platform that encourages cross-sector thinking, learning and collaboration.
The cross-sector model gives school leaders access to tailored expertise across functions ranging from business management, stakeholder engagement to using spreadsheets.
This comes from our expansive network of skills volunteers, a combination of expert individuals and senior leaders in our strategic, major and supporting partner organisations.
