Student feedback


The Foundation course has been designed with a long term learning journey in mind. The aim of this course is for students to build their knowledge around the ‘what’ of leadership. Much of the learning students undertake will build their foundation level knowledge of leadership in anticipation of tackling the Advanced course at some point in the future.

In this course students will explore concepts such as ‘what is leadership?’ and ‘who do we see as leaders in society?’ Adding on to some of these core fundamentals will be areas such as developing self-awareness, effective communication and planning.

By the end of the course our goal is for students to have the fundamentals of leadership embedded so they can tackle the Advanced course, and greater responsibility, the following year.
