Program Description

Leadership Starts from Within is designed to: build leadership capacity of people in the workplace, enable understanding and practice of contemporary leadership, allow participants to develop an understanding of ‘self as leader’ particularly through the lens of emotional intelligences, and to provide opportunity to enact effective leadership in the workplace.

Participants develop strength-based approaches to building leadership capabilities by undertaking, analysing and utilising 360o feedback data.

This program is suitable for employees in either teaching or non-teaching roles where there is opportunity to lead. A 360 Degree Feedback survey is a feature of this program.

Please note that this program closes for enrolments on Friday, 19 February 2021 (3 months before the first workshop date).

This program connects to a qualification pathway. It is one unit of four units required to attain the Post Graduate Certificate (Leadership) with UTAS.  This program is 50% completion of the post graduate unit (ESM760 Leadership Starts from Within) leaving a balance of 50% which requires only one 2500 word reflective essay based on the program learnings.

Target Audience includes aspiring leaders and those in leadership positions:

  • Teachers with a minimum of five years practice and full teacher registration (or evidence of working towards full registration).
  • If you are in the non-teaching sector, you have had an opportunity to undertake a leadership role in the workplace. This opportunity may be/has been in an acting, short-term, project-based or fulltime capacity.
  • You have the capacity to lead and/or influence improvement in the workplace.
  • Your involvement is supported by your supervisor or principal.
