At Springboard Trust, we Transform Schools Together.
We are a unique education change and impact organisation, bringing cross-sector experts together with New Zealand school leaders to create effective strategic leadership for Aotearoa.
That leadership shapes students, schools, staff, parents, whānau and communities – creating incredible long-term outcomes and a brighter future for our tamariki.
“If our schools thrive, our society thrives, and that depends in a large part on leadership. Springboard helps build the strategic and leadership skills of the dedicated people running our schools. Through our work, we aim to play our part in ensuring that all Kiwi kids, regardless of where they live or what their means are, have access to a great education.”
- Ian Narev, Board Chair, Springboard Trust
Our Purpose: Transforming Schools Together
We transform schools together with leadership as the centre of change. Principals, senior and middle leaders create the conditions for everyone in a school to thrive, and we support them with tools, learning and coaching - enabling them to bring their best.
We transform schools together – supporting those leaders to ensure positive outcomes for students, staff, whānau, community and everyone the school engages with. We are deeply rooted in Aotearoa, and work with schools to support the aspirations of our tamariki and tangata whenua.
We transform schools together through our unique cross-sector model, creating trusting and genuine dialogue between school leaders and experts from the public, private and philanthropic sectors. Informed by best-practice leadership and cutting-edge educational research, we are the platform on which lifelong learning is formed.
