The Aspiring Leaders Program
Applications for Cohort E Beginning August 2020 Now Being Accepted
The Nova Scotia Aspiring Leaders Program (ALP) is a professional learning program for teachers, mentors, and department heads who are interested in becoming effective school principals and vice principals. The program is offered by the Nova Scotia Department of Education and Early Childhood Development (DEECD) in partnership with the Educational Leadership Consortium of Nova Scotia (NSELC) and participating Regional Centres.
ALP extends over 14 months beginning in August and includes two summer institutes and seven Friday-Saturday seminars. An eight-day residency program with an experienced school principal is integrated throughout the program. A certificate is granted following an exit assessment and successful completion of all program components.
Conference Featuring Lyn Sharratt
On April 27 and 28 the EECD, NSELC and Regional Centres for Education/CSAP are co-hosting Lyn Sharratt, author of Clarity: What Matters Most in Teaching, Learning and Leading.
The conference will be an opportunity for delegates from the cohosting organizations to learn about the “right things to do right” to achieve effective district-wide improvement. Day one will focus on the research behind her book, “Clarity”, and day two will be dedicated to discussing implications of this research for Nova Scotia.
