CSA Leadership Development

We are servant leaders. Leadership in a Christian school is about enabling those around us to thrive. It is about intentionally training and equipping the next generation of leaders to be ready to lead complex organisations with a clear vision of Christian education that honours God and equips young people to live a life of purpose and hope in His Kingdom.

Current Programs and Initiatives

Commencing March 2021

CSA has formed a landmark partnership with Christian Heritage College (CHC) to provide a bespoke Graduate Certificate in School Leadership & Management tailored specifically for Christian school leaders.

You will be part of an exclusive CSA cohort so that content, assessment, case studies, resource materials, conversations and networking will be specific to the Christian Schooling context – giving you the most effective training possible for your leadership role and professional development within Christian schools.


Through this partnership, CSA is able to offer this Graduate Certificate in School Leadership & management at a significant cost reduction for CSA members (both teaching and non-teaching) in 2021 for only $490 per unit. This is almost an 80% reduction on current market rates. Limited to only 50 places – get in quick!

FLAME | Female Leaders And Managers in Education

The FLAME Network is a network for women to support their journey into and through leadership at a school or board level. Join a passionate group of women to continue to inspire, support and challenge Christian women in leadership in Christian education. If you are a male leader, you are welcome to be one of our champions by attending yourself and/or encouraging female leaders on your board or school management team to engage with Flame. Together, we aim to celebrate women in leadership and to continue to inspire, encourage and support aspiring and emerging leaders in Christian education. The FLAME network will facilitate strong connections between experienced and inexperienced leaders and help identify and encourage structures that support women in leadership.

Flame is more than networking and building relationships, it’s about developing capacity of female leaders and aspiring female leaders to lead with confidence and humility to be all that God has created them to be.

FUSE | Find, Upskill and Support Emerging leaders

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.
