Would you like to build your leadership confidence and empower your team to help you navigate the many challenges of an ECEC environment?

Being in a leadership role can be incredibly rewarding, but it can also feel lonely and thankless at times. Many people are thrust into a position of leadership without any formal training or mentoring support and have little time to undertake further studies to boost their skills. As a result, leaders can spend many hours resolving problems within teams instead of focusing on quality outcomes for children.

Our Leadership — Empowering and Engaging the Team Micro Credential provides the perfect way for ECEC leaders to boost their leadership skills and confidence while studying at a time and pace that fits within their schedule.

Suitable for directors and early childhood teachers | 5.5 hours of study | NQS areas 4, 6, 7
