Stage 3 Completion Requirements

Stage 3 Completion Requirements

The iLEAD Plus Scholars Stage 3 experience is currently under construction between August - December 2019, so we can further develop the stage and offer a better scholarship experience for our leaders in 2020.

Stage 3 was offered the first time in 2019 as part of a pilot program, and we are now seeking feedback from participants, looking at ways we can enhance the leadership development opportunities and experiences for our future participants. We want to deliver more for our future leaders.

So what does this mean for you? There will be no further intakes of new participants in Stage 3 of the leadership program in 2019, while it is under construction.

Applications will reopen late February 2020 and will be based on a competitive entry selection process.

If you would like to feed back into the design and redevelopment of Stage 3, please register your details on our iLEAD Plus Think Tank database, and we may contact you to be involved in surveys, focus groups, or other feedback forums to share your ideas and help to shape Stage 3 of the program.

Participation in the Think Tank is voluntary and feedback will remain anonymous in reports or program design documentation.
