Leadership Development Framework (LDF)

The Leadership Development Framework (LDF) has been developed to support both aspiring and existing leaders. The transition from a teaching role to a leadership role means an expansion of job scope beyond teaching and learning, which can be exciting and rewarding. The LDF will guide aspiring leaders to acquire leadership competencies in a progressive and holistic manner. It will also support existing leaders to keep learning and deepening their skills.

Through this LDF guide, you will learn about the:

Desired Attributes for EC leaders;
• Clusters of leadership competencies for Centre Leaders; and
Training roadmap for Centre Leaders

For a start, ECDA is applying the LDF to the Centre Leader role before expanding it to other leadership roles. We hope the LDF will be a useful tool in your journey as a Centre Leader!
