Nita Schultz, Manager of Learning and Innovation at Central Gippsland Institute of TAFE has been selected as one of only 38 to attend the prestigious Executive Leadership Institute in Arizona, USA. Community Colleges in the USA are very similar to TAFE Institutes in Australia.

"I was fortunate to receive a professional development grant from the Victorian TAFE Association to develop my leadership skills. I decided to take the opportunity to apply for this Institute and do some work shadowing with highly regarded leaders in education." said Ms Schultz.

A panel selected the 38 participants from a pool of approximately 100 applicants holding senior level positions of leadership.

The purpose of the institute, to be held in Tempe, Arizona, December 8-13 2002, is to provide an opportunity for potential community college presidents or those in transition to review their abilities and interests, to refine their skills, and to participate in discussions on leadership with outstanding community college leaders in North America.

"This program will give me a chance to improve my speaking and presentation skills and to meet people in similar roles to my own", said Ms Schultz.

"The program will show me my strengths and weaknesses as a leader and will give me the opportunity to work on those gaps and raise my skill level"
