The National Excellence in School Leadership Initiative (NESLI) is a collaborative national arrangement bringing together thousands of school leaders, academics and leadership experts across the country. These passionate individuals share with NESLI a genuine commitment to developing exceptional schools through exceptional leadership. In achieving its aims, NESLI works alongside schools from every state and territory helping to support leaders at all levels to exceed their potential. NESLI’s unique national engagement is further strengthened by a number of key relationships, including a partnership with Monash University, which provides credit opportunities for Australian school leaders into Masters level qualifications. Through ongoing communication with schools spanning all systems - government, catholic and independent, NESLI occupies a unique vantage point ensuring it is well positioned to meet the needs of today’s school leaders. NESLI wishes to acknowledge the tremendous ongoing support it receives from a wide range of stakeholders and advocates.
