Developing Leadership: Creating the schools of tomorrow / Edition 1

  • What is our best present understanding

    of good school leadership?

  • How do I lead my school to make it

    relevant to students of the 21st century?

The idea for this book grew out of an

international conference organized by the

National College for School Leadership,

An International Future: learning from

best practice worldwide, which explored

innovative and significant aspects of

educational leadership and brought together international

colleagues to generate new understandings. The conference proved a

dynamic forum for debate for researchers, academics, policy-makers

and practitioners. It was clear at the conference that there was a

consensus of understanding around certain key themes that crossed

national boundaries. In Developing Leadership, well-known

international contributors explore this consensus to promote the key

themes which reflect our best present understanding of good school

leadership, and to inform school leaders about leading edge thinking

which bears on their role.

These key ideas, which are highlighted at various points throughout

the book, are built around professional learning communities;

distributed leadership; strategic thinking about ICT; sustainability;

internship; mentoring and coaching.
