Principal Exchanges

We provide Principal Exchanges, so that principals, tumuaki, and aspiring principals can experience different jurisdictions, settings and mediums to assist them in developing leadership capabilities and practices.

The South Australian Principal Exchange grants recipients the chance to work alongside a South Australian principal in their school, before returning to their own school to host the South Australian Principal.

The New Zealand Principal Job Shadow pilot has been modelled on the South Australia New Zealand Principal Exchange, it offers an opportunity for Principals, tumuaki and aspiring Principals to shadow a fellow New Zealand Principal and in some cases return to their own school to be shadowed themselves.

More information on both programmes and instructions on how to apply, can be found by following the links to the left-hand of this page.

You can also email principal.jobshadow@education.govt.nz or call 0800 165 225 if you have any further questions.
