Ignition: the 2012 Emerging Leaders' Unconference will take place at Albany Senior High School, Auckland on 16-17 April 2012. To stay informed of upcoming events, please join the Facebook page.

What is an unconference?

An unconference is a participant-driven event. Rather than inviting people to attend a conference where everything has been decided by others in advance (the speakers, the content, the timetable, the spaces etc.) an unconference emerges out of the strengths and interests of the people who attend.

You won't be lectured at, but you will be given a chance to lead and be led by other emerging leaders. We have a broad definition of what an emerging leader is and includes pre-service, first and second-year teachers, middle and senior managers (we consider Principals to have emerged). If you want to help chart the course for education, this is the place for you. Register at http://emergingleaders.school.nz/
