Working with school leaders across the world

Working in partnership with key stakeholders from Australa’s highly respected education system, GSLA is presently developing a strong presence across Australasia. Over the coming years, GSLA’s Australasian Chapter will continue to work closely with some of the world’s best educational institutions to create ever more innovative development opportunities and build an exclusive global network of school leaders.

Through the Schools Leadership Colloquium, NESLI has established itself as a respected and trusted leadership education provider across many geographical boundaries. As NESLI’s local reputation has grown so too has its visibility across a number of international markets. The Global Schools Leadership Alliance (GSLA), of which NESLI is a founding partner, has been created in conjunction with an unprecedented array of international stakeholders as a platform to introduce the highly respected Schools Leadership Colloquium into schools systems in other countries. This unprecedented international collaboration affords NESLI a unique view of school leadership across the globe leading to better informed and internationally recognized outcomes for school leaders.
