The Leadership Development Program participants accepted into the program are required to hold NB Teacher's Certificate V and have 5 years teaching experience. The requirements for completion include among others, involvement in School Improvement Planning, participation in specific training modules, completion of an approved project in conjunction with an educational mentor and experience in providing professional development for colleagues.
