Since 2007, we have greatly expanded the ways we support school leaders here at Springboard Trust. While the Strategic Leadership for Principals Programme (SLPP) remains the cornerstone of our mahi, we also support widespread change in schools through programmes focusing on the leader as an individual, as well as distributing that leadership throughout a team.
We like to think of the work leaders do with us as a journey – beginning with the foundation of strategic leadership, and then focusing on one’s own leadership style and how they can develop the leaders around them – all to create lasting change for students.
It’s a journey that Tom Webb, principal at Mangere College, is very familiar with. Since 2017, he has embraced nearly all the learning that Springboard Trust has to offer – and seen the results throughout his school.
