SLSA Leadership College
This program offers surf lifesavers the opportunity to develop leadership, management and personal skills to enhance their involvement in surf lifesaving. The college is conducted each year and is open to surf lifesavers aged between 20 and
30 years. Participants must hold and be proficient in one or more of the following SLSA Awards: Bronze Medallion, Advanced Resuscitation, Radio Operators, First Aid or Surf Rescue Certificate. Participants are selected based on their commitment to their club and increasing their responsibility with surf lifesaving.
SLSA Leaders Masterclass
The conference provides an opportunity for existing leaders at all levels to participate in a high level leadership development program, with a particular target of club presidents. It is aimed at leaders in the 30+ age category and will be very useful for leaders with a limited surf lifesaving background or those who have re-entered the organisation after an extended period of absence. The conference will provide an environment that will enable the delegates to refresh and extend their leadership capabilities.
SLSA Leadership Excellence Program
As part of an exciting new partnership between The University of Queensland (UQ) and Surf Life Saving Queensland (SLSQ), the UQ SLSQ Leadership Excellence Program will be conducted annually to provide participants with the knowledge and skills to advance as a leader within their club, branch and state. Today’s volunteer surf lifesaving leaders must negotiate a maze of relationships, networks and expectations in order to effectively lead in the surf lifesaving environment. Leadership demands innovation, creativity, negotiation, improvisation and strategic vision – we aim to bring this out in you.
