What I learned from the Advanced Leadership Program

A participant in the Advanced Leadership Program reflects on her experiences and shares some tips for women school leaders.



Welcome all,

2016 is already shaping up to be a huge and exciting year in the educational leadership development space. The NESLI initiative has grown dramatically in the last twelve months and demand from schools across the country shows no sign of abating anytime soon. As more and more school leaders at all levels come together to learn about best practice leadership, I am both honoured and proud to be a part of this growing movement.

My experience as a NESLI facilitator in 2015 was certainly eye opening and gave me sufficient insight into the quality of NESLI programs, and how much they are valued by participants across the country. On the strength of that understanding, when key members of NESLI approached me with an offer to take the reins as the Head of School, I made a radical change to my career; relinquishing my position as a secondary school principal and joining the team full-time.

The prospect of being part of actively supporting the continuing professional growth of educational leaders across the country is an exciting privilege.

Stay in touch to keep up-to-date with all things NESLI in 2016.

Best wishes to you for the new school year!
