What is the School Leadership Development Programme?
The School Leadership Development Programme is a five-year leadership development platform that aims to nurture, mould, and advance Malaysian secondary school students to become the CEOs of tomorrow.
How is the School Leadership Development Programme different from other leadership programmes out there?
What sets the School Leadership Development Programme apart from other leadership programmes is its primary focus of developing the CEOs of tomorrow. It is our aim to nurture top performing students that will one day helm leadership positions in organisations and businesses of this country; individuals who are well versed in matters of communication, creativity, business acumen, ethics, and leadership skills. Furthermore, the programme offers constant and consistent contact hours throughout the five years through its various modules (experiential workshops, community projects, online learning, personal reflection, coaching, and mentoring).
Why start from Form 1?
Axiata believes that the five years spent at secondary school are among the most crucial years of a young individual’s life. It is during these formative years that they will be exposed to and learn the values and habits that will eventually form behavioural guidelines for their later years.
Under this programme, we have the AYTP curriculum that focuses on building the essential values, attitudes, and competencies; providing a learning experience like no other. One that will equip young Malaysians with both personal and leadership skills needed to be the CEOs of tomorrow.
