The outcomes of our work during 2022 are a tribute to the passion and commitment of school leaders, volunteers, and our Springboard Trust team. The 2022 Impact Report is also a call to action. It shows us where we need to keep improving. As Springboard Trust's reach continues to grow, so too does our responsibility to ensure that what we do makes a difference.
The themes that emerged from our 2022 programmes for school leaders include:
An uptick in confidence in leadership skills such as strategic planning and implementation.
A focus on support for ākonga Māori and a strong interest in engaging Māori stakeholders from across the school community.
An emphasis on collaboration, fostering strong relationships, and team building.
During 2022 we also focussed on improving our evaluation framework. Through two independent external evaluations from ImpactLab and NZCER, we have identified not only the social return on investment of our flagship Strategic Leadership for Principals Programme, but also key areas in which we can further our efforts for even greater impact.
None of this mahi – nor its impacts – would have been possible without the generosity of our volunteers and partners. We are so very grateful for their support of us and their contribution to our vision: Strong strategic school leaders | Thriving tamariki mokopuna.
