The demands of 21st century life and work call for educational leaders with a deep understanding of how students learn and at what levels they need to learn.

Our schools must have leaders who can provide teachers with the leadership and support they need to help students gain the skills and knowledge, now identified as important for success in a “flat” world of uncertainty and constant change.

Consequently, there is need to grow learner-centered school leaders who know how to create a professional environment where all the adults in the school are constantly improving their own skills and knowledge, and helping and challenging each other to serve the particular needs of every learner.

FLED International Leadership Institute offers a Postgraduate Certificate in Educational Leadership (PCEL). The course is designed to empower school owners and school heads at the Primary and Secondary Education levels.

Participants will:

  • Learn how to set up functional leadership structure in a school.
  • Understand which school and classroom practices improve students’ achievement
  • Know how to work with teachers to bring about positive change.
  • How to establish effective staff support system that reduces staff turnover.
  • Support teachers in carrying out instructional practices that help all students succeed.
  • How to help staff to reconcile school vision and mission with their personal visions.

PCEL draws from the need to shift educational leadership standards away from traditional pre-occupation with school management, and put the highest priority on results for students, resource mobilization and management, and institutional stabilization.

It lays strong emphasis on the developing personal leadership competencies of participants while exposing them to emerging intricacies of educational leadership.
