Lead the way and grow your career potential!

Coming into the final stretch of the year, you’re likely considering PLD opportunities for next year.

Lead the way with the Advanced Leadership programme, designed specifically for women in education. Connect with likeminded leaders across Aotearoa and grow your career potential.

You may be interested in these case studies from three amazing women leaders who have completed the programme.

Erana Haerewa
Curriculum Manager
Te Puna Reo o Puhi Kaiti
Sharon Prestidge
Deputy Principal
Mapua School
Each with unique needs, Hannah, Erana and Sharon had different experiences of the programme. All highlighted the positive impact Advanced Leadership had, not only on themselves but also on their colleagues and learners.

Build capability for supporting staff health and wellbeing

An item for my Kiwi readers.

Kia ora Michael

It’s hard to believe it’s nearly Term 4! 2020 has been a challenging year for all, one in which wellbeing and feeling supported is more important than ever.

This week being Mental Health Awareness Week (MHAWNZ), wellbeing is particularly topical.

‘In pursuit of ora’

“Ora means to be alive and to be well. We all want to feel a state of ora for ourselves and for those around us. It’s something that we strive for.” In this blog post, Anahera McGregor shares her personal perspective on the pursuit of ora using Sir Mason Durie’s Te Whare Tapa Whā model for wellbeing.

Educators’ Wellbeing Toolkit

If building internal capability for supporting staff health and wellbeing is a priority for you, the Educators’ Wellbeing Toolkit may be PLD to consider for 2021.

A whole-staff development programme, the Toolkit can be undertaken by your entire staff or smaller groups.

Enabling opportunities for safe, collaborative conversations, each of the five modules include:

  • an expert tutorial
  • peer learning sessions
  • tools and resources (provided through a dedicated Learning Resource Centre).
