Leadership Pathways Seminars 

This year, the conference starts for all attendees on Thursday morning, with seminars to cater for principals at every stage of the leadership continuum – new principals; those in their second year in the school leadership role; those in years three to five, and those more experienced leaders from year six onwards. Each seminar focuses on a different aspect of the leadership ‘journey’. Choose the seminar that suits where you are on the continuum.
