Leadership Development Framework

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.

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!
