About the program
The UNSW Leadership Program
The Program is a combination of practical & engaging workshops to help you develop important leadership skills and knowledge, and a short volunteering placement we call 'community engagement' in a setting of your choice. It is designed to be completed alongside your study load.
To ensure a rich and varied learning experience that will broaden your thinking, the learning content has been developed and is delivered by staff from many different specialist areas of the university including Student Development, New South Innovations, The Michael Crouch Innovation Centre, Careers and Employment, Student Development International and Equity and Diversity.
The program involves several components;
- an online introductory workshop module;
- face-to-face workshops (minimum 4); and
- at least 20 hours of community engagement.
Upon successful completion of each of these components, the program will be listed on your AHEGS.
Prior to semester 2, 2018 the policy had been that you must complete the minimum 4 workshops before moving into the community engagement component.
As UNSW transitions toward 3+, the Leadership Program is committed to evolving its structure to ensure ongoing flexibility. Therefore, after registration and completion of the online introductory module, you must complete at least 2 face to face workshops, before beginning your community engagement. In order to complete the program, you must complete the remaining 2 workshops before the program will be listed on your AHEGS.
These changes have been introduced to both accommodate the new study calendar for 2019 and ensure accessibility for all students as we transition toward the new model.
* Please note that UNSW Leadership Program endorses the UNSW Ally Training and will recognise it as one face-to-face leadership workshop, only if you attend the Ally Training after you complete the Intro to Leadership online workshop first.
