CPD Programmes for School Leaders

For principals, the professional development programmes are designed based on the six core areas of leadership, namely (i) Strategic Direction and Policy Environment; (ii) Learning, Teaching and Curriculum; (iii) Teacher Professional Growth and Development; (iv) Staff and Resources Management; (v) Quality Assurance and Accountability; and (vi) External Communication and Connection to the Outside World.
