Education Leadership Development

Research has shown clearly that effective educational leadership is critical to the success of students.

The Ministry of Education and Child Care, 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 (PDF, 6.7MB) that details specific challenges for educational leadership and lays out a path forward.
