The Leadership Program

The Leadership Program provides education specifically tailored to the needs and challenges of leadership. It is ideally suited for school leaders – principals, deputy principals, heads of welfare – as well as CEOs and managers working in organisations, services and programs that focus on youth and/or mental health. The Leadership Program runs alongside the usual Generation Next event.

The Leadership Program is different from the Main Program in the following ways:

  1. The sessions are longer, tailored specifically for leaders and include time for questions and discussion
  2. The sessions will NOT be a repetition of what is in the Main Program
  3. The sessions tackle topics from a whole-organisational and/or a policy development perspective
  4. The audience size is smaller than that of the Main Program. Seats are limited to encourage a more intimate and interactive learning environment
  5. Speakers are selected for their specific expertise at both frontline and organisational levels
  6. Delegates will receive a separate handbook and other learning materials specific to the Leadership Program.

How it will work

The event will run from 9am to 5pm on the same day. Those who have registered for the Leadership Program will have access to the Main Program, however delegates registered for the Main Program will NOT have access to the Leadership Program.
