The Centre for School Leadership (CSL) is pleased to present the Learning to Be a School Leader in Ireland research document. The document is the culmination of lengthy and broad- based consultation involving desk and field research, consultative forums with stakeholders, written feedback, and a series of follow-up workshops. It is intended to inform the planning and designing of professional learning provision for the continuum of school leaders into the future.
CSL acknowledges the generosity of the many stakeholder groups who engaged with the team throughout this process and the support of the Teacher Education Section of the Department of Education. We look forward to continuing engagement with the system to ensure that school leaders can avail of high-quality professional learning at every career stage. CSL’s vision is that high-quality professional learning will result in improved leadership practices in schools, and better outcomes, experiences and well-being for students and for the entire school community.
