School leaders



Course description

If there is something that really characterizes the 21st century it is the processes of change. Schools face great challenges to adapt to these changes brought by society, education laws, new knowledge about learning, etc. At these times the leader has to understand their role and develop a variety of leadership abilities, namely: vision, motivation, empowerment, values, inspiration, awareness, action, emotion and trust.

School leaders drive and dynamize the teamwork of teaching staff, which makes it possible for systemic educational change to happen with the participation and involvement of the whole educational community. In this way, the management team’s educational vision, the teachers’ commitment, the pupils playing the main role and collaboration from families, are key to a successful transformation being set in motion at schools.
