A systematical approach to school management and education is one of the requirements for an effective school. During this course participants are introduced to some tools and some good example schools for building a systematic picture of their organization’s development and mechanisms.
The course has a strong practical focus. Taking part in this course, the participants will understand the key elements and principles related to collaborative leadership, management and will acquire concrete methods and activities for engaging employees and students that they will be able to implement in the school.
