This programme is aimed at developing within individuals the capacity to understand and change organisational systems and to understand and change oneself.

A key objective is to build capacity in individuals to operate outside of their functional responsibilities and to broaden their understanding of organisational and system issues, enhancing their ability to operate at a strategic level. The programme therefore challenges individuals to move beyond their current functional roles and behaviour; to open up to approaches when working with others to achieve goals and to generate more efficient and innovative outcomes.

Assistant Principal Officers (APs) are an important link between senior management and those tasked with delivering organisational goals on the ground. The challenge for those new to the Assistant Principal level is to find a balance between using existing experience and expertise while continuously identifying alternative approaches, behaviours and skils to work with and through others to deliver on goals and responsibilities.

This programme is designed to assist people newly promoted into the Assistant Principal role to align their skill sets and approaches with the needs and expectations of this senior leadership role.
