Who can participate?
Anyone can apply to participate in the Fairley Leadership Program. Candidates should:
- be able to demonstrate leadership potential;
- show a genuine interest in community affairs;

- be ready to accept the time commitment required for completing the Program.
Potential participants complete an application form, attend an interview and if selected are offered a place in the upcoming program.
How much does the Program cost?
The Fairley Leadership Program’s delivery is valued at more than $10,000 per participant, however much of this cost is covered through the support of the Program by regional organisations.
The standard fee for the 2018 Fairley Leadership Program is $5,200 +GST for participants sponsored by their employers and $2,100 +GST for individuals and participants from the community and not-for-profit sector.
Don’t worry about the fee when you make your application. Some places in the program are sponsored by generous local organisations and individuals or through philanthropic or government grants. We will consider your eligibility for a sponsored place if you are invited to an interview.
Please call Program Facilitator on 5831 8420 if you would like to discuss your potential eligibility before applying.
Will it matter if I can’t always attend?
The launch, graduation and opening and closing retreats are compulsory for participants. To graduate they must also have a participation rate of 80 per cent for the remainder of events including seminar days, a small number of dinners and study tours to Melbourne and Canberra.
