Secondary School Leadership is a relevant and dynamic leadership program is focused on developing both individual and collective leadership skills with a focus on school-based initiatives. Students come as a group from their school (E.g. student councils, athletics councils, arts councils, clubs/committees and advocacy groups). Students will be given opportunities to explore and strengthen their own voice as "partners in education" and will, as a school group, develop a student-initiated action plan to take back to their own school setting.
The uniqueness of this course is that students will attend this course with a teacher advisor. This advisor plays a critical role in helping the group achieve their goals back at their school. Teacher advisors will be able to participate in all aspects of the program. They will be able to network with teachers from around the province and share best practices. Teacher advisors will also attend special PD sessions designed around current issues in schools.
