School Leadership Opportunities

We are hiring!
Quality in education consists of happy teachers, a good student-teacher ratio, modern equipment and adequate space and classroom facilities. A good school should offer facilities for retraining teachers and good salaries at par with related spheres. A well-designed school should have modern aids and teaching devices. A school should be a centre for excellence. It should employ good teachers and pay them well. It should encourage a concern for environment and cleanliness. Above all it should be managed by a dynamic Principal and competent, humane teachers.

As the numbers grow the biggest challenge is school leadership development. Quoting from one of my earlier posts, "... my thoughts were at once directed to the head of the school. Should the principal be the CEO (Chief Executive Officer) with due qualification and degrees? Are owner driven schools, which look at the school purely as a business enterprise better than schools run by charities? Such questions always make us think and we do debate this matter often. Many good schools are owner driven and do not have the principal with the degree of an academician.  What is most important however that the Principal / Head of the School should be the Chief Learning Leader".

If you wish to be the Chief Learning Leader and help transform schools  join us ...

In our quest to deliver quality in education we have been given a mandate by school managements to help find school leaders and principals to not only lead the schools but to make the schools future proof. It is very hard for us to do crystal ball gazing and design schools that will live the test of time. The young people who enter the school today will graduate after a decade and a half and in most cases the school leadership will have changed by then!

The Principal is the  most important agent of change not only for the school but for the community around the school ecosystem. This makes the search for the right school leadership a big challenge. With my learnings with schools delivering 'affordable quality education', we have discovered the Principal alone is the key to have happy teachers deliver better. The school may not have the best paid staff, but must have a committed staff and a great workplace that empowers people. The Principal as the Chief Learning Leader (CLL) can alone make this a reality.
