European PLA seminar - Delivering strong school leaders: trends and inspiring practices in Europe

European PLA seminar - Delivering strong school leaders: trends and inspiring practices in Europe

Friday, May 29, 2015 (All day)
Brussels, Belgium
On Friday 29th of May 2015 vleva and GO! put leadership in education in a European perspective during a European peer learning seminar from 9.15 am to 1 pm at Vleva, Avenue de Cortenbergh 71, 1000 Brussels. Strong school leaders make evidence-informed decisions, provide the instructional leadership that teachers need in helping all their student to succeed in school and in creating a collaborative school environment in which teachers take part in school decisions. The ideal profile of a strong school leader therefore consists of the following three components:
  • a pedagogical expert with a strategic vision,
  • a strong organiser with excellent problem solving skills and
  • a people manager who motivates his team, shows openness for innovation and is accessible for every teacher, pupil and parent.
However, one is not born school leader. It usually is the final position in a long career of an engaged teacher and the result of subsequent professional development courses for leaders in education. What do you learn at the European peer learning seminar on 29 May?
  • David Istance of the OECD presents international trends in school leadership.
  • You discover the results of the EFEE-project on “Professional autonomy, accountability and efficient leadership”.
  • You learn from inspiring continuing professional development training from France, Germany,  Scotland and the United Kingdom
  • Exchange of view in a closing round table discussion.
