Words can’t express how much Team Dignitas has done for us. On behalf of Claire’s Community Centre, Dandora, I’m so thankful for your support. We value your insight and guidance that you have always provided us. Many thanks to our lovely coach, Peris, who worked tirelessly to lead us to tremendous growth in our school.

Here's what our teachers are saying

“As a result of Dignitas training and coaching in our school, pupils are able to participate freely and lessons are more interactive. I have become more aware of mixed abilities in my classroom, and think about how to cater to all learners. Students are more open to sharing when they have not understood; it’s no longer about pleasing the teacher.”
Tr. Rahab

“I am very grateful to Dignitas for helping me transform my school. Teachers relate well with learners and children are happier now than before. In the community, people say we care for our learners. Enrollment has gone up. My greatest appreciation to Dignitas is knowledge gain. You have equipped me with skills that I will use to run and grow my school. I never used to document or keep records, but now I keep records of everything that goes on at school. The school had no mission, vision or values. Now we have them."

LeadNow has a diagnostic tool that has been designed to help you understand your leadership competencies and areas of growth in order to ensure that decisions you make about your professional development are well informed.

Once you have selected a course, the requirements for course completion and certification include;

  • Attend onboarding session.
  • Attend at least 70% of learning sessions.
  • Attend at least 80% of COPs for course reflections.
  • Attend at least 70% of coaching sessions.
  • Timely completion of assignments/reflection assessments.

Once you are registered for a LeadNow course, you can find your course schedule when you log in.

LeadNow courses consist of asynchronous learning sessions, remote coaching sessions, Community of Practice (COP) sessions and frequent assessments.

Each LeadNow session has reflection prompts that allow school leaders to share their own knowledge and application of content learnt. Each of these reflection prompts acts as a check for understanding and also has a score tag that accounts for up to 20% of the session completion. For example, responding to 4 out of 5 reflection prompts in a session might earn you a score of 80% for that particular session. To get 100% score in a session, fellows are required to respond to all reflection prompts to the best of their knowledge.

A certificate of completion is awarded to each LeadNow user who meets the course completion  threshhold

Upon course completion, LeadNow graduates will qualify to join a vibrant community of educators in the Dignitas Alumni Leadership Network (DALN). DALN brings together school leaders and teachers who are champions of quality education, and passionate to share best practices across the region. DALN offers opportunities for further engagement as Peer Facilitators and in DALN leadership roles. Register and be part of DALN

If you do not complete a course on LeadNow within the assigned period, you will lose your opportunity for course certification and will be required to register and begin the course again at a later time of your choosing.
