What makes a school leader successful in the 21st century? How can school autonomy, accountability, distributed leadership or capacity building contribute to enhancing equity and learning?
School leadership in the 21st Century is not any more about the individual heroic work of a school leader, rather it is the process of strategically using the unique skills and knowledge of teachers, pupils, and parents, toward achieving common educational goals. The core task of school leadership is leading and managing teaching and learning; the key question is how it can provide the opportunity for all children, regardless of their social background, ethnicity or sex, to maximally benefit from education and become a productive and active citizen.
The Knowledge Centre of Tempus Public Foundation has been implementing projects in the above thematic fields since 2008. Our thematic website offers various materials related to our main themes and information on activities and events such as workshops for school leaders, conferences, webinars, forum discussions, etc. We have been partners in the European Policy Network on School Leadership (EPNoSL) since 2011, in which we are responsible for the coordination of knowledge management activities.
We recommend the website to school leaders, teachers, researchers and policy-makers.
