Application workshop: The “Organisational and planning ability” competency

2 March 2019

Through the selection process, candidates are assessed against eight competencies based on evidence of effectiveness in the classroom. In this series, we explore how to best address each of these competencies in your application.


If you can you plan and prioritise to meet deadlines and work efficiently, then the Leadership Development Program is the perfect choice for you!

The Leadership Development Program pushes participants’ boundaries and tests resilience, problem solving, organisational and planning ability like no other.

Throughout the duration of the two year program, Associates work as a teacher with full salary and benefits, while also studying a Master’s degree and participating in extra-curricular activities – this makes for quite a busy time in your life.

To be able to combat the demands that are placed on you, it is imperative that you are able to organise and prioritise in a timely and effective manner.

As always, it is important to give us the most recent examples of your planning and organisational skills (preferably within the last 2 years) – this gives our team the best ability to determine whether or not you would be suitable for the program.

A candidate who meets benchmark in this competency is able to plan, organise and prioritise activities effectively in order to meet deadlines.

Remember: we will extend an offer to anyone who can prove that they meet the benchmark for each of our eight competencies. Reach out to one of our Recruitment and Advocacy Managers to learn more about how to address them in your application based on your experience.

Good luck with your application and possibly, the start of this life-changing journey!
