National Emerging Leaders' Program - NELP

For the past three years, the Barker Institute, the AIS NSW and Caulfield Grammar School have been working collaboratively to develop the skill and capacity of emerging Middle Leaders within our two schools. Having implemented the National Emerging Leaders Program(NELP) for the first time in 2016, we are very pleased to be working with CGS again this year. Similar to 2017, five members of staff have been selected across School to participate in this NELP program. Participants undertake a series of training days and project workshops during the year, while also being appointed a reciprocal coach who is an existing member of the Senior Leadership team at the partner school. 

By engaging the Emerging Leaders with experienced staff in different locations, the opportunity to share professionally is a valuable opportunity for all involved. Mr Phillip Heath - Head of Barker College and Mr Ashleigh Martin - Principal of Caulfield Grammar School are strong advocates for the development of Emerging Leaders. 

Working alongside the established College of Teachers' program at Barker College, the NELP project complements the work being undertaken on a larger scale within the School, while aligning well with the key mission of the Barker Institute.
