July 1 - July 5, 2024

Foundations for New School Leaders brings together practicing Principals as facilitators and panelists, along with the inspirational voices of BC’s education partners. It’s an exceptional opportunity for leadership development, networking, learning, and growth.

The week-long program on the UBC campus has been developed in alignment with the BCPVPA’s newly-developed Leadership Competencies for BC Principals and Vice-Principals.

Foundations supports new leaders to ‘think like a Principal and Vice-Principal’ as they transition to the role. The relationships and networks that are forged during Foundations will support new Principals and Vice-Principals throughout their careers. Developed in partnership with the UBC Faculty of Education, Foundations has been designed to help facilitate critical transitions, both from the classroom to school leadership, and from Vice-Principal to Principal, and provides a provincial context for educational leadership.

* Please reserve your room by MAY 31 latest to qualify for the reduced rate. Any available rooms after this date may be booked at regular rates.

Registration is now open
