Course Aims

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.

  2. critically evaluate and discuss the term "education" and nuances given to it in different contexts; the literature on the learning organisation; the impact of organisational culture on leadership practice, and the efficacy of online tools for organisational learning;

  4. demonstrate a deeper level of understanding of self as learner, and a capacity to create a vision for self as leader in positive education.
Graduate Attributes
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.
