Developed by the Faculties of Education and Management with the support of the Faculty of Māori and Indigenous Studies, the programme is designed to develop the skills required to lead and manage strategy and operations with diverse groups or teams within a University, Polytechnic or Wānanga. The emphasis of the programme is on leadership knowledge and ability and people and management skills in the higher education context. Changes and challenges in the higher education context will be addressed. The course will includeknowledge of the higher education context, academic leadership, responsibilities under the Treaty of Waitangi/Te Tiriti o Waitangi, and other capabilities required of leaders and managers in higher education.



Target Group

The programme is to be aimed at University of Waikato academic staff at Senior Lecturer or higher and general staff in leadership roles. For partner tertiary institutions the target group are equivalent middle or senior manager roles with a staff and other significant management component. The programme draws from participant experience and some assignments need to be completed in a management context so the current role is an important factor.
