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.
