The Graduate Certificate in Applied Leadership in Positive Education is designed for postgraduate students from within the broad education discipline seeking to develop their leadership capacity. It aims to provide graduates with knowledge of strengths-based approaches to leadership including positive psychology and the concept of a learning organisation, and the ability to apply this knowledge in their own organisational settings.

Knowledge of a Discipline
Two knowledge bases are explored within this program. First is the knowledge base of leadership within the educational context, be it early years, school, VET, HE, industry, professions, armed forces, etc. Second is the knowledge base underpinning the development and approach of positive education, drawing on positive psychology, positive organisation scholarship and strength based approaches to leadership and development. The base of literature, impact of our actions and contexts in which we operate, particularly within an active community of learners, are all situated within a global perspective and this view is embedded throughout the program.
Graduates will be able to communicate a model to build a positive culture within their specific context.
The nature of the negotiated assessment process ensures that participants are engaged in problem solving to meet their specific needs and the needs of their education context
Graduates will have engaged with social media and virtual platforms, and will be able to use these within everyday activities to sustain a virtual presence and influence.
Ethical Conduct and Social Responsibility
Graduates will focus on the promotion of sustainable solutions to educational problems and the promotion of wellbeing as a concept. They will understand and practise the highest standards of ethical behaviour associated with their profession, including an understanding of their ethical responsibilities towards colleagues.
The course develops an inquisitive and appreciative approach to lifelong learning as participants go in search of what works.
Independence and Collaboration
