"This forum is a space of leadership of influence with facilitators who professionally lead with integrity, mana and respect for all the participants, with tautoko and advocacy for the power of leadership."

"As I am moving into my next career step as a Leading Principal I wanted to refine my leadership skills to better 'Lead the Leaders'. My participation in the Advanced Leadership programme has not only helped me achieve my original goals, it has also reinvigorated my passion for educational leadership. The commitment to grow leadership can be seen by the quality of the materials and the facilitation team. I would highly recommend this course to both aspiring and experienced principals."
Mārama Stewart, Principal, Waiouru School
"The Advanced Leadership programme enabled me to understand more about breaking things down into smaller components and seeing things from other staff's point of view. I learnt that making small steps does not mean expecting big changes over a short period of time. It's a mindset change and we all just need to get in the waka."
Keri Steele, Principal, Springfield School
“The programme was a real positive in my personal journey because I got the chance to reflect and closely examine my own capabilities as a leader. I’ve become a better listener, and am much more aware of personality types and how best to communicate with them. The programme has given me more confidence as a leader and I’m taking more risks and giving things a go. Not only have I grown in my faith in my own abilities, but I am actively seeking new leadership opportunities.”
Chévon O’Leary, Year 6 Teacher, Wellesley College
“I found all the modules relevant, up to date with the latest research and authentic to my needs as a leader. The program was well paced and the video clips were perfect for my learning style. I could go back and revisit them as often as I liked. I enjoyed the interaction with the other course participants and still stay in regular contact with my buddy/coach. We make an effort to phone each other once a month and coach each other through our various leadership challenges.”
Dyane Stokes, Deputy Principal, Paparoa Street Primary School
“The Advanced Leadership programme (ALP) is an invaluable applied leadership programme for women working within middle and senior leadership level. The leadership modules were extremely informative and applicable to everyone’s educational contexts. The interactive learning platform enabled us to collaborate over module learnings, apply new knowledge and share real life experiences. ALP is a great investment for women leaders who are looking to obtain a greater understanding of leadership and the professional skillset that is required to become an effective senior leader.”
