Sign up for the Educational Leadership Forums

Being the leader I need

Following the success of our 2020 Leadership Forums, you are invited to join us for 2021, exploring the theme: ‘Being the leader I need’.

Term 1: Knowing the leader I am

Term 2: Navigating leadership

Term 3: Lifting our sights

You will engage with educational leaders in all sectors from across New Zealand in small-group dialogue which will deepen your own understandings of leadership. You are encouraged to bring your co-leaders with you, and to join NZEALS to get the full benefit of post-forum follow-through. Each online forum lasts around 50 minutes.
