Leadership Development


The Centre for Leadership Development (CLD) at the Academy of Leadership in Higher Education (AKEPT) plays a crucial role in shaping and strengthening leadership within the higher education community through the implementation of three primary functions. In designing training modules, CLD places emphasis on the diversity of participants' competencies to ensure effective delivery of theoretical content and understanding of concepts before direct interaction.

Under the function of Instructional Leadership, CLD engages in identifying the needs for academic leadership competencies, designing training programs, and developing instructional modules that focus on both theoretical aspects and practical applications of academic leadership.

In the realm of Administrative Leadership and Management (Institutional), CLD manages the planning and implementation of leadership programs, emphasizing the development of competencies in the context of administration and academic management across various types of Higher Education Institutions. CLD also monitors the implementation, ensuring alignment of theory with practical application to meet competency requirements in different Higher Education Institution scenarios.

By aligning these tasks, CLD AKEPT strives to create a holistic and progressive learning environment, shaping a generation of higher education leaders who are of high quality, relevant, and equipped with comprehensive competence.
