Education Leadership Development
We know that education leadership is a critical factor in the success of our students.
Today, as we transform education to better support students, educators are shifting the way they teach, principals are changing they way they support teachers and districts and authorities are changing the way they support their schools. To respond to these changes, and the challenges associated with increasing demographic leadership retirements, a new approach to professional development for education leaders is required.
The Ministry of Education, BC School Trustees Association, BC Principals’ and Vice Principals’ Association, BC School Superintendents Association, Federation of Independent School Associations BC, and BC Association of School Business Officials have collaborated to create a provincial Leadership Development Framework that details the specific challenges, outlines common areas of effective educational leadership, and lays out a path forward.
