Basic Leaders is a 5-day leadership course held in Trentham Military Camp, Wellington. Students are nominated by their Platoon commanders from Induction Course for showing and displaying traits of Leadership. Here the students learn everything about leading teams with a military styled leadership template. The students are put into teams. They are put through numerous tasks and activities where they plan, come up with a set of Orders(task plan) and they present it to their respective group. The objective is to give the orders and to stand back and let your team do everything. This is a challenge as some leaders get in and do the work where they are supposed to lead. Again, 5 students from each academy are nominated and all work together. Basic Leaders course is where students learn the fundamentals of leading teams.
