Aspiring/Emerging Leaders Seminar

The Aspiring/Emerging Leaders’ Seminar explores, in depth, the recruitment process and the transition to principalship and provides a reality check for those exploring the possibility of taking on a Principal’s role. 

This popular seminar is highly interactive with current Heads/Principals of ISNZ Member Schools sharing their first-hand experience of the key issues the Head/Principal of a school faces.  External speakers, who are experts in their chosen fields, are engaged to address the audience on other current, relevant and topical subjects.  The open forum provides delegates with the opportunity to raise any questions about the role of a Head and how to get there.  
This seminar gives delegates a clear understanding of a principal’s role, with specific reference to the private schools sector, and provides them with tools and resources that will equip them for principalship across all school types.

Target Audience: Teachers and Middle and Senior Managers, who aspire to become Heads/Principals.
