About the program

Stage 1 Emerging Leaders

Stage 1 consists of six engaging and contemporary workshops facilitated by experts from their specific fields. Each workshop is designed to align with one of the six leadership agilities in the iLEAD program. These highly interactive workshops are designed to provide participants with a strong theoretical framework on what leadership is, establish their initial personal leadership goals and impart a clear understanding of leadership strategies and mindsets.

Stage 2 Launching Leaders

In Stage 2, participants will identify which leadership specialisation they would like to pursue in order to build on the individual goals that they set during Stage 1. Participants will pitch a plan for their own leadership journey and participate in online learning courses on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. These courses will provide theoretical and practical knowledge to support their global citizenship and leaderships agilities.

Stage 3 iLEAD Plus Scholars

Stage 3 continues to build on the agilities developed during Stage 1 and 2 through a supported self-directed project. Participants will  develop their project based on their own leadership goals and demonstrate the skills they have learned throughout the program. Through discussion, research, mentoring and reflection, participants will attain practical experience and leadership confidence.
