Student leadership training

Yellow Arrow provides dynamic and engaging student leadership training for students either preparing to become student leaders or for those who are already in their role. 


Our facilitators have years of experience as teachers in primary and secondary schools, camp leaders (in Australia and overseas) and program managers in the NFP sector. 

We understand the challenges faced by student leadership coordinators, Head of Students, student council coordinators and design engaging programs and activities so you can focus on developing rapport with your students (rather than having to create all the content!)

Our student leadership programs are designed to be educational, experiential and transformative.


This is because we believe leadership is caught not taught. We have school leadership activities in the form of a 90 minute workshop or a full day student leadership training program. These workshops are highly dynamic and interactive. As much as possible we like to get our participants sharing and problem solving. 

Project Santiago is a comprehensive student leadership program for year 10 students. We have developed a curriculum so that you have everything you need to run a leadership elective subject in your school. Many schools use this program to develop a leadership pipeline to train their senior school captains.

We regularly host interschool Student Leadership Conference events where student leaders and teachers across Victoria can meet and connect. The activities are fun, experiential and educational! 

The Online Escape Room is an hour long experiential learning activity for students. They are challenged to think laterally and solve problems as a team. The activity is then followed by a facilitated discussion led by a member of the Yellow Arrow team!

We run Professional Learning for teachers in leadership roles. We have online and in-person public events throughout the year that teachers can book in for, and also offer in-school professional development catered to your school’s needs. These are designed to have practical takeaways and frameworks that can be instantly applied in the classroom. We make every effort to foster a positive culture enabling participants to learn from each other also.

In summary, we run leadership workshops for high school students and teachers and design them based on a discussion with you about what you are trying to achieve.

As soon as the Yellow Arrow team walked in to our Year 12 Reboot Day, I was confident we had made a positive choice for our students. Their facilitators (Rachel, Steph and Felicity) were engaging, warm and streamlined in their approach to the teambuilding activities from the day. The sequence of activities built up the confidence of our students as they had to push themselves further out of their comfort zones as the day progressed. The feedback from our Year 12s was overwhelmingly positive and many of them reflected they had walked away with valuable lessons about communication and leadership. We'll definitely be interested in having them back for our 2023 Year 12 cohort!

Our Community

We support Student Leadership Coordinators to develop and connect with other teachers in the same or similar role. Often Student Leadership Coordinators, Head of Students and other teachers responsible for the leadership development of students are solo agents in their school. Our online community is a place to share resources, ask questions and develop as program leaders.

Thought leadership

Our blog covers topics about student leadership and areas related to leadership in general. We are always looking for guest writers to share from their experience supporting student leaders. What questions do you have about student leadership or managing a student leadership program that we can help with?
