This unit is designed to help students become active leaders in their discipline specialisation area. The aim is to create the conditions in which students can confidently lead education projects based on their discipline specialisation within their school or wider community. This unit will allow students to demonstrate and apply their knowledge and skills by designing projects that are suitable for specific school or wider community contexts.

Students will work individually and in groups, establishing relationships with their peers, the school and/or the wider community. Students will design, develop, implement and critically evaluate an education project, making connections to, and drawing on, different theories of leadership within education.
