FUSE is a vital part of a National CSA leadership development initiative to Find, Upskill and Support Emerging leaders in Christian schools.

Fuse is a coordinated, well-resourced and accessible program that aims to intentionally identify, inspire, encourage and train potential leaders to equip them for high quality leadership from a Christian perspective. Together with the provision of well researched, practical leadership development programs and opportunities, Fuse will upskill, support and equip new and aspiring leaders by enabling strong connections and facilitating structures that support emerging leaders.

Fuse is about developing capacity of new and aspiring leaders to lead with confidence and humility to be all that God has created them to be.

Praise for FUSE Emerging Leaders Course

This has been one of the most beneficial PDs I’ve undertaken.  Thanks so much to all involved in making this happen!  Much appreciated.


Great session this morning, Andrew. Informative and well balanced with the breakouts. Brilliant pre-reading and resources. I am benefitting greatly from the wisdom shared through yourself and CSA.


I really enjoyed hearing from those who have had experience, whether it be at a principal level, engaging with the finance side of education or at board level and the decisions that need to be made there.


Training in aspects of educational leadership which are not covered by any previously professional development workshops I’ve experienced.
