Our Leadership courses

This series of courses has been designed to support both current and aspiring early childhood leaders to strengthen their leadership skills and build their capacity to lead teams, and to undertake improvement journeys in their contexts of practice. The courses have been designed to facilitate participants to undertake a coherent leadership journey, with each course building on the learning of the previous course. However, it is also possible to take individual courses. You will start each course as part of a cohort at specific times during 2024-25.
