InterLEAD is known for its skill in analysis and action based research. Programmes are well researched, tested and tailored to your need. For those who require help in monitoring their achievements, we provide mentoring and support.

A specific feature of most of our programmes is our uniquely designed Multi Learning Approach to professional development. We developed this approach to overcome many of the traditional pitfalls of learning approaches in the interpersonal skills and behaviour change areas. It is this approach that gives us the confidence to guarantee our outcomes.

One of the consistent areas of feedback is that our services break a lot of the past moulds, in a beneficial way. Clients say that our services offer the best practices in personal and organisational development from outside the education environment, but in a manner which acknowledges the educational ethic and culture rather than attempting to abuse or ignore it.


Workshops and Programmes

Our workshops and programmes have been developed in New Zealand with extensive international research backing. It means we offer ‘leading edge’ development – based on ‘world best’ practices tailored specifically for New Zealand teachers in New Zealand schools and early childhood centres or service. Participants in our workshops tell us the learning experiences and approaches we offer are the best professional development opportunities they have ever experienced. A variety of challenging topics from one day sessions, to four day programmes, and residential and host school programmes are offered across the year.
