Using Grip Leadership Conferences to Help Your Students Grow

Unique in its pursuit to specifically train student leaders, the Grip Leadership Conference is a day-long learning experience that takes a practical and interactive approach to leadership training. As a values-driven organisation, students can expect to learn the importance of generosity, responsibility, integrity, and people. Grip Leadership provides three conference options: Primary, Secondary, and Professional Development for Teachers.

Each Grip Leadership Conference includes main presentations, interactive activities, discussions, leadership games, and entertainment. Some topics within the Primary Grip Leadership Conference include responsibility and the importance of planning. Within the Secondary Grip Leadership Conference, students can expect to learn how to better manage their time and to effectively solve problems. The Professional Development leadership conference for teachers helps them in implementing the other e-learning programs that Grip has to offer. 

Rather than featuring guest speakers, each Grip Leadership Conference is presented by specialists in the area of student leadership. Their Grip leadership team consists of young men and women who have had the role of student leaders in their pasts. Many choose to share their own experiences which gives the students a first-hand sight of what it means to be an effective leader. Many teachers compliment the youthful and professional nature of those leading the Grip Leadership Conference as they were able to keep students engaged while presenting them with meaningful and useful information. 

What Have Educators Said About the Grip Leadership Conference?

“The first time I attended the GRIP Leadership Conference I was impressed and didn’t think it could get any better. Each year I am amazed at the content, variety, resources, and enthusiasm of all of the presenters. It is super organised and runs smoothly. A professionally run conference. Thanks for making a difference and don’t stop offering these conferences.”

Melinda Thompson, Weir State School

Now Let’s Talk Leaders of Evolution

Like the Grip Leadership Conference, Leaders of Evolution has e-learning programs dedicated to building the career-ready leaders of tomorrow, today! Our courses explore concepts that relate to the themes discussed within the Grip conference as we share a common goal to inspire students to challenge themselves by taking on leadership roles in their communities. Some overarching ideas have to do with the importance of human interaction, time management, and taking responsibility. 

Unlike the Grip Leadership Conference, our e-learning program is designed to be accessible on any device, any-time, and anywhere. We believe it is vital for students to engage in a lengthy course in order to attain long-lasting results. Within our courses, students will reap the benefits of Peer to Peer Learning and Student-Driven Projects. Our e-learning program puts students at the forefront of the lesson plan to ensure that they are fully engaged throughout the entire learning experience. By changing the paradigm of a typical primary or secondary education, we are able to save teachers’ valuable time while educating students in a way that is fun and meaningful for them. 

Our 4 C’s Learning Framework

Each of our courses follows our 4 C’s Learning Framework that aids students in enhancing their Competence, Confidence, Character, and Connectedness. We believe these traits are essential criteria in any great student leader and are confident that each student will finish our courses with a newfound understanding, appreciation, and ability to apply each of these concepts. 

Competence: We define competence as relating to the skills the learner is developing whether they be technical (what) or tactical (how) and are intrinsically linked to performance outcomes in students. A competent student knows what skills they need and how to utilise them in order to achieve a goal. 

Confidence: This skill is all about the development of positive self-worth and recognition that the learner can use the knowledge gained to influence themselves and others. We believe a confident student is one who is able to acknowledge their accomplishments while still recognising the areas in which they need to improve upon. 

Character: At Leaders of Evolution, character relates to how the learner develops a sense of self-awareness and behaviours such as empathy, integrity and responsibility within the communities they apply their learning. One with good character is a student who displays their leadership capabilities in all of their efforts whether they be big or small. 

Connectedness: Connectedness relates to how the learner is able to establish and foster positive working relationships within the environments they apply their learning. A student who displays connectedness uses their interpersonal skills in an effort to help their peers and community.

What Have People Said About Their Experience With Leaders of Evolution

“I’ve found the resources Leaders of Evolution have provided to be really helpful in terms of mapping out what influence leaders have in our school community and help the students own their leadership responsibilities.”

“We consider all Year 5 & 6 students leaders and with the e-learning course, we can ensure every student has an opportunity to learn these important life skills. We have seen immediate school community impact from our collaboration with LoE.”
