Session Description

School Leaders determine up to 25% impact on student learning, second only to impact of teachers in the classroom. However the critical position of school leaders in our schools does not always get the requisite structural support, autonomy and capacity building. Whilst the majority of traditional philanthropic education funding has been mobilized in supporting innovative teaching methods, the fundamental leadership and organisation of schools is questioned far less frequently. This comes despite the swathe of research indicating that student performance targets and effective teaching in high-performing schools cannot be achieved without well-skilled school leaders. This discussion will incorporate varied perspectives on the design and delivery of leadership training in schools, and why it is a crucially underestimated issue.

Key Takeaways:

  1. Focus on Instructional Leadership- transition from teaching to a school leadership role
  2. Structural mechanisms to support leadership position in schools, in terms of roles & responsibilities, recruitment & induction, and autonomy & decision-making
  3. Design elements and enabling tools to run effective leadership training programmes
