UNSW Student Development is proud to announce that their Leadership Foundations program is now taking applications for their 2021 intensive program.

Leadership Foundations is an AHEGS accredited leadership development program available to all UNSW students.

  • Self-awareness
  • Wellbeing and resilience
  • Effective team relationships
  • Building safe and inclusive teams
  • Conflict management
  • Collaboration and communication.

This program is a co-curricular professional development program, which is free and non-credit bearing. Participation in this program is voluntary and involves the completion of development tasks to successfully meet the program requirements (and to receive AHEGS accreditation, course certificate and promotion on LinkedIn).
