Welcome to the Educational Leadership Project

Educational Leadership Project Ltd (ELP) provides professional learning and development for educators in the early childhood sector.  Since the organisation was established in the year 2000, we’ve worked with thousands of early childhood centres from around New Zealand and overseas.

ELP conducts professional learning programmes and assessment on behalf of the New Zealand Ministry of Education.  You can read more about our current Ministry of Education projects on our Programmes page.

We also undertake professional training and development programmes for individual and cluster early childhood centres.  These individual programmes are tailored to suit the centre’s specific needs and desired area of development, and may include a range of learning techniques including workshops, one-to-one mentoring, and group coaching.   

The ELP team is a group of highly skilled and experienced facilitators who are passionate about early childhood teaching and enabling educators, through professional learning, to develop in to the best that they can be.

"Everytime I come to anything that ELP has run I feel ready to tackle any problem and celebrate the learning that happens for children each day. Your workshops ground me, challenge me and inspire me :)" Fran Paniora, Head Teacher, Forrest Hill, 2018
