Leading 21st Century Schools Program

The Leading 21st Century Schools: Engage with Asia (L21CS) Program is Australia's foremost professional learning program supporting school leaders to build Asia capabilities and lead change to support Asia capability across the school community. The program fosters a collegiate support network with school leaders and educators.

L21CS acknowledges the pivotal role of principals in effecting education reform at system and school level and has equipped more than 1,000 school leaders nationally to lead Asia capability in schools. 

Participation in L21CS is designed to support school leaders in two ways:

  • as learners – by building Asia capabilities
  • as leaders – by building the capacity to drive the change process required to support Asia capability across the school community.

AEF works in partnership with education jurisdictions to establish cohorts of school leaders to undertake customised L21CS programs designed to meet their specific needs. 

Program structure

L21CS is organised around four professional learning modules:
