The National Quality Framework encourages all educators to see themselves as leaders. Leaders create a positive culture, empower others and work towards continuous quality improvement.

Explore the role of leaders in children’s services and understand how every educator has a role in leading – leading a team, leading children or supporting their own leaders. We will look at any specific leadership issues your service is facing, and provide you with practical strategies to implement today.
