Leading in a Learner Centred Organization Certificate
The Leading in a Learner-Centred Organization Certificate (LLCO) is a 60-hour program. It is accessible to educational coordinators, program chairs, program administrators, managers, executives, and any employee in, or interested in, a leadership role in an educational institution.
LLCO provides educational leaders the opportunity to increase their leadership skills while developing a people-centred philosophy of management. An integrated approach which merges practical training with theoretical learning will be used in the program to assist participants in developing practical leadership skills for use in an educational institution. By the end of the program participants will be able to engage in people-centred consultation and communication, develop effective work groups, engender trust and respect, and promote a culture of intrinsic motivation in an institutional setting. Successful graduates of LLCO will receive an Okanagan College Leadership in a Learner-Centred Organization Certificate.
