Leadership Development in Struggling Schools

Cullen, Jane (2004). Leadership Development in Struggling Schools. In: 17th International Congress for School Effectiveness and Improvement (ICSEI), 06-09 Jan 2004, Rotterdam, Netherlands.


This paper draws on evidence from a DfES funded school improvement project in the UK to explore leadership development in secondary schools in exceptionally challenging circumstances. Initiatives aimed at leadership development are briefly described. Central to these initiatives is the idea of expanding leadership opportunities for staff in these schools. The early impact of this development work is examined and some cautious comments are offered as to their long-term potential.
