"NESLI’s Advanced Leadership Program has had a profound impact on my career, and has been without a doubt the best professional course I have ever done. I did the program whilst I was a deputy principal, and the skills and confidence that I gained throughout the program gave me the self-belief to apply for and get the position of principal. Don’t hesitate to do this program! It is interesting and invigorating but most importantly extremely helpful."

NESLI’S PROGRAMS RECOGNISED AS PATHWAY TO POSTGRADUATE STUDY FOR SCHOOL LEADERS IN USA​

The National Excellence in School Leadership Initiative (NESLI), a leading provider of leadership and wellbeing courses for those working in the schools sector, has entered into an innovative articulation partnership with Lesley University in the USA.Under the agreement, participants who successfully complete a NESLI American program offering, including the Schools Leadership Colloquium and the Advanced Leadership Program, are eligible for credit towards the Master of Education program offered by Lesley.The recognition arrangement is an exciting development in providing high quality online and blended professional learning for school and school district leaders in North America. Founded in Australia in 2014, NESLI’s focus on applicable learning outcomes and their unique blended learning methodologies has created a new global standard in the development of school leaders. NESLI started offering courses to the North American market in 2015, and has quickly established itself as a preferred supplier of leadership and wellbeing programs to the schools market across the continent.   Lesley is a leading university in Cambridge, Massachusetts, specialising in education, expressive therapies, creative writing, counselling and fine arts programs. The Master of Education program is delivered online and can be individually designed to create a personalised and unique learning experience.The agreement formalises the close working relationship that has developed between Lesley University and NESLI. It builds on similar arrangements that NESLI has with Monash University for articulation of NESLI programs into Monash’s Master of Leadership and Master of Education postgraduate offerings. “The growing demand for NESLI programs in North America, especially in the areas of leadership development for current and aspiring school principals and district superintendents, has generated significant interest from participants in pathways to postgraduate study,” explained Professor Mike Gaffney, NESLI’s Academic Director. “Our agreement brings the strengths of each partner organisation to the table. Lesley has a reputation for providing high quality, customised and individualised postgraduate courses that are ideally suited to the learning design and suite of program offerings provided by NESLI.”   Looking ahead, Professor Gaffney emphasised that the agreement provided “…the basis for further cooperation and collaboration in tackling NESLI’s and Lesley’s shared priorities for inspiring school leadership, quality teaching and engaging learning.” ​
