The New Zealand Principal Job Shadow Pilot has been modelled on the South Australia-New Zealand Principal Exchange. It offers principals, tumuaki and aspiring principals the opportunity to shadow a fellow New Zealand principal, and in some cases return to their own school to be shadowed themselves.
