Short Course I & II

BCPVPA Short Course I
July 2 – 6, 2019 at UBC-Vancouver

Inspiring Early Career Leaders

Developed in partnership with UBC, Short Course I is an intensive, one-week (44 scheduled contact hours) program designed to provide new school leaders with an opportunity to hone the skills necessary for success in their new roles.

Short Course I has been a part of this province’s educational leadership development for 40 years. The course work contains a blend of research and practical application that creates an essential understanding of what principals and vice-principals need to know and how to accomplish it.

Each year experienced principals and superintendents work together to plan Short Course I, deliver the sessions, and facilitate the small group learning. Participants are immersed in the realities of school administration and given the knowledge, skills, and strategies needed in their new roles. Throughout the week participants have daily opportunity to reflect on their learning and set action plans for the year ahead.

The program is based on the Leadership Standards for Principals & Vice-Principals in British Columbia. Each day of the program focuses on one of the four Domains of the Standards (Moral Stewardship, Relational Leadership, Instructional Leadership, and Organizational Leadership). The concluding session, on Saturday, revolves around our BC education partners.

Moral Stewardship • Instructional Leadership • Relational Leadership
Organizational Leadership • Inspiration to Lead
