Effective leadership is crucial to successful student outcomes. The Ministry of Education has three new supports for leaders.
The new initiatives are part of the Ministry’s interim support package for leaders which will be in place until the end of 2019 while the Education Council develops a leadership strategy and establishes its Centre for Leadership Excellence.
In conjunction with the Education Council, the Ministry reviewed its centrally-funded support for leaders and designed supports based on feedback from the sector.
The leadership package has been tailored to the individual needs of leaders at all levels of the system and reflects a shift in the education system with the establishment of the Education Council, Investing in Educational Success (IES) and the new leadership roles of Kāhui Ako. Additional to this support, leadership for learning continues to be accessed by a school, kura or Kāhui Ako through centrally funded PLD.
The supports for leadership are Leadership Advisors, Emerging Leaders, and Expert Partners.
