ECA’s Leadership Program for Victorian Educational Leaders

ECA’s Leadership Program, revised in 2021, is a renowned program for educational leaders and teachers in leadership roles. Through this tailored Victorian cohort, 220 Victorian Educational Leaders will delve deep into leadership theory and practice aligned to the VEYLDF, through participation in a dynamic and collaborative community of practice. Here you will explore your own practice in line with evidence-based leadership capabilities, and be supported to build skills in leading yourself, leading with and for others, and leading within and beyond your organisation.

You will be introduced to the program by Dr Anne Kennedy, participate in live webinars with leading experts, and connect with other Victorian Educational Leaders to bring research and contemporary knowledge into practice.
Over the course of six months, participants will complete a series of self-paced online modules and webinars, while also being invited to connect live with Australia’s leaders in early childhood education, including Dr Leanne Gibbs, Professor Susanne Garvis and Professor Manjula Waniganayake. Participants will also receive a hardcopy Leadership Program guide and have access to a collection of reference and contemporary research materials.

Enrolment in this program is limited and by application only. Victorian Educational Leaders interested in this opportunity will need to complete an application form outlining their leadership experience and their learning goals and have the support of their service to participate in the six-month program. Please note that due to limited places in this program eligible applications will also be reviewed to ensure Educational Leaders from across Victoria and from a range of service types are included.

The Department of Education and Training (Vic) will provide a contribution, to eligible services, towards hiring an early childhood professional to backfill a teaching staff member participating in this professional learning for up to three days. Further information on applying for this contribution will be provided on completion of the Leadership Program.

*An anonymised review process will be used to ensure educators from across Victoria and from a range of service types have access to this professional learning.
