It’s tough in schools ATM. Teachers and school leaders have faced repeated lockdowns and remote learning situations for almost three years and now they are battling ongoing sickness, absenteeism of staff and the tiredness and overwhelm of many teachers who are trying valiantly to provide cover for the sick teachers.

The Solution is Innovative Leadership

Innovative leadership is the only way for schools to move forward. Schools need leaders who are passionate and forward-thinking, with 21st-century leadership skills to help prepare students for the challenges of a changing world while supporting the wellbeing and growth of their teachers.

The good news is that ‘Boomer’ changeover in school leadership is creating opportunities for a whole new generation of leaders to bring their unique insights and passions to the table.

Millennials in Leadership

Did you know that 81% of Millennials want leadership positions? Millennials in schools are keen to change hierarchical, traditional approaches to a contemporary approach, that is purpose and values driven while embracing innovation and change, adaptability, diversity and inclusivity, AND including an important focus on teacher wellbeing as well as student wellbeing.

School success relies on new leaders who are passionate, student-focused, and innovative embracing the challenge of leadership while being the best they can be. It is paramount that these new leaders inspire and support their teachers to know how much they are valued and how important they are to student growth and student success.

Actually, we need passionate educators like you!
