Have you registered yet for NZEALS 2022?

Over many years, NZEALS conferences have given opportunity for leaders to share their insights and work through leadership issues together, as well as hearing inspirational keynote and breakout group speakers. Meeting face-to-face over three days has been described by delegates as the 'best leadership PD I have ever experienced'. The event is not just for senior leaders or just for one sector of education. Through bringing together leaders of all levels of experience, from a range of educational settings, we can explore what it is to 'be' a leader in today's complex environments.

We have special registration rates for NZEALS members, early-bird rates for registrations before July 31st, group rates for delegates attending from the same school, tertiary or ECE setting. The conference fee includes 'time off' at the iconic venue of Hobbiton. What more could you want!
You have an introduction to our keynote speakers elsewhere in Leading Lights. Once all of the breakout sessions are full, we will display all of the abstracts and session outlines on the website. Here’s a taste of just a few of them: from New Zealand and beyond.

  • Leading literacy networks: stories of success
  • Primary school leadership for a play-based philosophy and curriculum
  • Fostering a sustainability mindset in Early Childhood Education [Insights from Ethiopia]
  • The inner leader: exploring our Ways of Being. He kōrero tō ia o ia o tātou. Everyone has a story
  • Leading in a time of crisis: Stories of resilience from the field [Insights from the USA]
  • Transitions in leadership: A comparative study of senior leaders [Insights from the USA and UK]
  • Industrial to innovative: Lessons from opening a new school

We look forward to meeting you in Hamilton!
