School Leadership

“Great schools do not exist apart from great leaders” – Leadership Matters

The project will create the Education Leadership Center which will train the principals of preuniversity education institutions. AADF will support the center for at least 5 years so that trained school leaders will be skilled to manage the institution and school funds. School leadership has become a priority in education policy agendas internationally. School leadership plays an important role in improving overall school outcomes by influencing the motivations and capacities of teachers, as well as the school climate and environment.
