Every year, Springboard Trust has the opportunity to support tumuaki in new regions across Aotearoa – and 2022 will see three parts of the country host their very first Strategic Leadership for Principals Programme (SLPP) cohort.
Where the Strategic Leadership for Principals Programme is running in 2022
We are once again running cohorts in the majority of places where we have historically operated – Northland, Auckland Waikato, Bay of Plenty, Hawke’s Bay, Wellington and Wairarapa, as well as the Canterbury region.
Northland | Te Tai Tokerau
Auckland | Tāmaki Makaurau
Bay of Plenty | Te Moana-a-toi
Hawke's Bay | Te Matau-a-Māui
Wellington | Te Whanganui-a-Tara
Canterbury | Waitaha
In addition, our three new regions are Taranaki, Otago | Ōtākau and the West Coast | Te Tai Poutini. We’re incredibly excited to be offering our strategic leadership programmes in these areas – and a huge thanks to the Toi Foundation for helping us get started in Taranaki.
As for our Strategic Leadership for Rural Teaching Principals programme (SLRTP), we expect to deliver this in the same regions as we are this year – Northland, Waikato and Canterbury.
What if my region isn’t listed?
Don’t worry! There are plenty of ways we can support your school leadership/hautūtanga even if we’re not running an SLPP or SLRTP cohort in your area.
One way is our virtual SLPP cohort - the same strategic leadership development, but in an online/tuihono environment. If you’d like to know more about that, you’ll find information here.
On top of that, you may have seen that we’re also welcoming a wider variety of funding applications for our strategic leadership programmes. This doesn’t replace our philanthropically funded places – it's in addition to them, which we hope lets us expand our impact across all of Aotearoa. For example, earlier in the year we ran our very first Nelson programme through MoE PLD – we'll have more on how that went soon!
And if I want to apply for 2022?
It’s all quite simple – just head this way to fill out the expression of interest and we’ll be in touch! And if you’re interested in volunteering with us in 2022, our Volunteer Manager Rebecca Brown is the one to contact.
Ngā mihi, and we hope to hear from you soon!
