What is the Cost?

The Community Leadership Development Program is priced very competitively with other leadership certificate programs in the region. Our program includes nearly 100 hours of face-to-face instruction time and approximately 80-100 hours of coached, hands-on learning time, as well as a personal mentor match.

The tuition for one seat is $3,000 (no GST).

Employers who wish to sponsor two or more seats will pay $2,500 per seat.

When an employer or bursary sponsor is paying the tuition, we require those sponsored employees to pay an individual tuition fee of $250 as a way of indicating their personal commitment for the program. Bursary applicants can negotiate a volunteer commitment to Leadership Victoria if they are unable to pay the personal commitment fee.

Limited bursaries are available. The number of bursary seats and criteria for selecting bursary recipients varies each year, in accordance with the wishes of our bursary sponsors. Demonstrating financial need is always a criteria. It is rare for us to provide bursaries for applicants whose employers are in the private or government sectors, unless other bursary needs are met and there are still funds available. Bursaries are awarded in early July, so if you wish to apply for one, you need to complete your application by June 30.
