Leadership Development

CQUni Certificates of Leadership and Engaged Leadership

The Social Change Model of Leadership Development (SCM) was developed by the Higher Education Research Institute (HERI) and the University of California.

The SCM is about working collaboratively to develop leadership skills in our students. The model has two primary goals:

1. Providing students with an opportunity to expand their learning and development through:

  • Self-knowledge - understanding and building on the student's strengths, values and interests (specifically in relation to leadership and individual "employability" skills; and
  • Leadership Competence - developing the skills to work collaboratively, solve problems, and work together effectively and creatively.

2. To enable the implementation of these skills through active participation in community-focused projects, with the aim of facilitating positive change in the community.

Whilst this program is still in the developmental stage, our aim is to incorporate experiential learning and reflection through all levels of the program. This will ensure that upon completion of the program, not only will you have learnt new skills, but you will also have been able to actively demonstrate these skills - perfect for improving your future employability as well as having a positive impact on your community!
