Global leaders program


​​​​​​​​​​We know the importance of introducing leadership concepts to students, to empower and prepare them for future leadership roles.

It’s why our schools provide high quality teaching and skilling focused on building the knowledge, skills and confidence to participate effectively in the global community.


Our global leaders study tour program develops students’ skills in leadership to shape our future global leaders. Students experience inspiring and challenging learning activities focused on building self-confidence, communication, teamwork and problem-solving skills. They build leadership skills that extend well beyond the study tour, forming a strong foundation for lifelong learning and global citizenship.

English language

The program is suited to students with high-level proficiency in English. Specialised English lessons can be arranged to further enhance the English skills and equip students with relevant terminology for future leadership roles.

​Program components

We partner with premier education and training facilities, including local centres of leadership excellence, to deliver custom-designed experiences. ​Suggested program components include:

  • roundtable discussions with school leaders on prearranged topics
