Australian experts put educational leadership on world stage

NESLI is expanding its horizons!

Here at NESLI we are delighted to be able to announce that we have been chosen to develop and deliver a ground-breaking national teacher leadership program across the United States.

Decision makers from the United States’ key school leadership organisation, the School Superintendent’s Association (AASA) met with the NESLI team in Washington DC last month to discuss how to bolster the depth and quality of American school and system leadership.

Following the successful trial of NESLI’s ‘Aspiring Superintendents Academy’ program in 2018, the Washington DC meeting was a precursor to the national roll-out of the program which will occur in 2019.

Designed as an interactive program, the Aspiring Superintendents Academy will better prepare the next generation of educators for the challenges of school leadership into the new millennium. According to Mr Damien Farrell, CEO of NESLI, the program has been especially designed to create a robust next generation of school system leaders.

“The Aspiring Superintendents Academy aims to produce educational leaders who are prepared to positively lead school districts into the future. Its focus is on creating dynamic, future-thinking system leaders who are ready to lead our children into uncertain and exciting futures” said Mr Farrell.

The USA’s adoption of the NESLI program is a massive endorsement for the quality of educational leadership in Australia. The AASA searched globally to find the most appropriate partners for this project, and NESLI’s program has put Australian educational leadership firmly on the world stage.

We are looking forward to working with AASA to develop and roll out this program, and hope that this opportunity is a precursor to other opportunities to expand in the future.
