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.
FLAME | Female Leaders And Managers in Education
The FLAME Network is a long-awaited national initiative of CSA designed to champion Female Leaders And Managers in Education. Together, we aim to celebrate women in leadership and to inspire, encourage and support aspiring and emerging leaders in Christian education. The Flame network will enable 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.
Are you an aspiring female leader who wants to equip yourself in readiness to be a successful leader in a Christian School context?
Then join with other aspiring leaders in this online course with 7 interactive sessions with expert guest speakers who will share their own stories, experiences and insights. This exciting new course will go beyond just identifying the problems, to providing practical strategies which women can control and have agency over.

Participants will be encouraged to complete reflective tasks between sessions.
