Our way ahead

The KLP describes the knowledge, skills, and qualities of New Zealand principals that we are looking for, now and in the future. It is a reference point which outlines the expectations we have of school principals. It is a starting point for a Professional Leadership Strategy (PLS) which will be developed in partnership with the sector. The strategy will provide a plan that is intended to strengthen and support leadership in New Zealand schools over the next three to five years. The PLS will be designed to address the system challenges outlined on pages 10 and 11 of this paper.

Two further parts of the overall strategy are under development: Kiwi Leadership for Senior and Middle Leaders, and Leadership for Māori- medium Leaders.
