Leadership

King's College Leadership Course

Offered to returning students, King’s College provides opportunities for Kingsmen to discover methods of successful leadership.

Introduced in 2011, the one year course is run (at no additional fee) under the direction of the College’s Deputy Master. The primary objective is to assist Kingsmen to develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to function successfully as individuals and leaders in their chosen profession but also, as responsible and active members of our community.

The first semester focuses on personal leadership and includes topics such as resilience, team work and the development of role models. Building on this foundation, the second semester broadens the scope of the leadership program to include leadership of small groups, analysis of effective leadership models and provides opportunities to lead through community service opportunities. Students receive a certificate upon completion of the course.

 

King's College Road Map Project

With the aim to assist students to articulate and achieve their goals and aspirations, each new Kingsman is interviewed on arrival at King’s to outline these intentions. Kingsmen will be re-interviewed in the second semester of the second year to gauge if they are on meeting their expectations, or if they need to be amended to reflect a new pathway. For many this would be the half way point of their journey.


Law Week @ King's

Held in March each year, Law Week @ King’s commences at the Qld Law Society Legal Careers Expo and concludes with the Cooper Foote Drinks. During the week King’s will host a series of events for law students both current Kingsmen and Old Collegians.

If you are an Old Collegian practicing law and able to meet with law student to assist with career planning or advise, please contact the Director of Learning Tony Andres

 

Vacation Work

The College expects Kingsmen in the final few years of their degree to actively seek vacation work. For certain degrees it is mandatory to have a certain amount of industry experience in order to receive their degree. The College engages Old Collegians to provide such opportunities.
