What is leadership for learning?
With the aim of transforming our country in educational terms, EduCaixa has created a professional development programme for teachers: its Leadership for Learning Programme.
International evidence shows that pedagogical leadership is one of the most important drivers for educational transformation and a key factor in the sustainability of innovation. Educational transformation requires educational organisations to place learning at the heart of everything they do and, consequently, everyone who forms a part of these centres must know how to lead learning processes, both in-house and external.
Leadership for learning is seen as leadership shared among all teachers. Its impact goes beyond the management team and also affects the teaching team, the classroom and the centre, promoting an improvement in the quality of student learning and the system as a whole.
Leadership for learning turns schools into "learning organisations" and teaching teams into "professional learning communities".
