Curtin Leader’s program is a Curtin-approved Tier 3 extracurricular course. The aim of the course is to help individuals studying at Curtin University develop their leadership skills and attributes. The program is a new program and runs over the course of a semester.
The program has been insightful for me as it allowed me to investigate how leadership is a different experience and path for everyone. For some people, leadership applies to their professional careers and for others, it could occur in their personal life or volunteer work. This program is more helpful to those who have a level of vulnerability while completing it and thus will allow for the individual to potentially gain a better understanding of themselves and their leadership styles.
The expectations for students are to attend three full-day intensives, eight workshops and six learning circles. Two hours of self-directed learning are completed each week, a portfolio is submitted, and a presentation is completed at the end of the program.
The program is free to Curtin University students. Topics covered in this program include
- Design Thinking
- The Social Change Model,
- Project Management
- Community Engagement and Advocacy
- Public Speaking and Pitching
- Personal Branding and Digital Identity
