This year, the 2015 Educational Leadership Academy (ELA) is proud to offer two different academy streams taking place during the same week in Calgary and in Edmonton.
Who Should Attend?
Each Educational Leadership Academy experience has been crafted to offer a significant professional learning experience to principals, assistant principals, department heads, learning coaches, central office personnel, consultants and teachers aspiring to educational leadership.
The registration fee for either event is $300 plus GST. For members of the Council for School Leadership of the Alberta Teachers' Association (ATA) or all other members of the ATA, the fee is $150 plus GST. The fee covers the program, a continental breakfast, morning and afternoon coffee breaks and lunch each day. Participants are responsible for their own travel and accommodation. Space is limited, so early registration is recommended.
The Academy is an intensive, five-day program that requires the direct and sustained involvement of all participants to achieve the greatest benefit and growth of both the individual and the Academy cohort. Sessions run daily from 8:30 AM to 5:30 PM, and the participants are asked to commit to full participation in all sessions. Participants in the Edmonton Academy option will also have some follow-up activities during the 2015/16 academic year with Simon Breakspear, including a callback face-to-face meeting in January 2016.
Is university credit available for this Academy?
Yes, university credit may be available for qualified participants. Please contact Leslie Kaun at 780-447-9410 (Edmonton) or 1-800-232-7208 (elsewhere in Alberta) or by e-mail at ELA@ata.ab.ca for details.
