The ePolyTechnic Academy consists of two, 5-day Leadership workshops/sessions, one year apart. These sessions are identified as Week 1, and Week 2. A yearlong practicum experience occurs between these training sessions, with support and guidance provided by Academy Facilitators, self-selected mentors, and an Academy liaison.
The Practicum includes
Participants develop and implement individualised action plans to address leadership topics and competencies covered in the first training session, Week 1. Participants expand their plan to include other leadership topics covered during the second training session, Week 2.
After completing Week 1 of the Academy, participants self-select an internal and/or external mentor who will provide support, guidance, and feedback during the practicum year. A mentor selection form is submitted to the Academy, providing information about the chosen mentor. Academy facilitators provide coaching and further guidance and support during the Academy. Participants also select a "Program Buddy" for peer support during their practicum experience.
During the practicum experience, participants are encouraged to continually reflect on their leadership capacity and their IPDP. Reflection helps participants establish a benchmark journal of where they are now, determine what they have learned from their objectives and experiences, and what they will do as a transformative leader in the future.
Participants are encouraged to remain engaged in online discussions and webinars. Academy Facilitators are also available during these online connections.
Lifetime Academy Membership is available to all participants, providing an additional forum of collaboration and learning. Membership benefits include a broad spectrum of materials, publications, and events that further enhance leader skill sets, curiosity, and insight.
Several assessments are incorporated into the content and cost of the Academy, allowing participants useful knowledge and insights about themselves in their personal and leadership environments. In addition, a 360-degree evaluation tool is utilised, allowing participants to evaluate personal growth and development, as well as reflect on the information provided by supervisors and colleagues. With “pre” and “post” leadership survey instruments, these evaluations are measured over time.
