The Program:

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 Nova Scotia Leadership Consortium (NSELC) and participating school boards.

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.

The program has been designed to be a balance between knowledge and skills, theory and practice. Reflection and networking opportunities are incorporated into each seminar and institute.

Application Process:

Applications are submitted through each participating school board. Applicants must provide three work-related references that include their current supervisor. School board staff will review applications and make selections based on identified criteria. All applicants will be notified following the selection process.

Short-listed applicants will be interviewed by a panel of school board personnel. The interview panel will make the final selection of successful candidates.

*The deadline for applications for the 2018-2019 Cohort D program is April 15, 2018. *

For more information about making application to ALP, please contact the ALP contact person in your board.
