Leadership Program 2019 

We have some big news! We are developing a new Program that will be ready to launch in 2020! 

Therefore, we would like to inform you of some important changes in 2019. 

  • Students who registered in the UNSW Leadership Program prior to 2019 will have until Friday the 13th of December to complete all components of the current version of the Leadership Program. 

  • Students who have not yet registered in the program but have a keen interest in developing leadership and volunteering skills are encouraged to register for the Skill Development Program. This will provide students with an alternative pathway into the Program and opportunity to develop additional skills. (More information below)

Students Registered in UNSW Leadership Program Prior to 2019 

For students who are currently registered and active in the UNSW Leadership Program you will have until Friday the 13th of December 2019 to complete all of the components of the program in order to receive your certificate and for the UNSW Leadership Program to appear on your AHEGS.  

What happens next for registered students? 

  1. You will receive an email prior to O Week asking you to register your intention to complete the Leadership Program by the end of 2019. You have until Friday the 1st of March 2019 to complete this short survey.

  1. In Term 1, week 2,  we will be conducting optional information sessions for students who have registered prior to 2019 to assist you in navigating your way through the different components towards completion. 

  1. You will complete the components of the program that you have not yet completed i.e. attend Leadership Training throughout T1,2 or 3 and/or commence and complete your Community Engagement hours 

Students Registering in 2019 

Students who are interested in participating in a Student Development Program in 2019 are encouraged to firstly register in the Skills Development Program (SDP).  

The Skill Development Program offers flexible volunteering opportunities throughout the year. It aims to facilitate the development of graduate attributes including teamwork, communication and leadership skills through casual volunteering opportunities on campus such as O-week, Open Day, Info Day and off campus events such as Festival of Dangerous Ideas. 

What happens next for students registering in a Student Development Program in 2019?

  1. Sign up to the Skill Development Program (SDP) to have access to incredible opportunities lined up for 2019

  2. Students who have been active in the SDP are eligible to attend Leadership Training in Connect Week (T1: 20th – 23rd May 2019). 

  3. If students attend a minimum of 4 Leadership Training topics during Connect Week and complete 20 hours of SDP they can be considered as completing the UNSW Leadership Program. 

  4. If students wish to also have a certificate and AHEGS recognition for the Skill Development Program, they must complete an additional 20 hours of volunteering.
