Program Overview:

The International School Leadership Certificate represents the culmination of many years of experience in providing professional development in Ontario and around the world. It builds on the strengths of the Ontario Principal Certification Program, international work to date, and our vision for the future.

It is designed to provide a comprehensive set of modules leading to the acquisition of an International School Leadership Certificate. Our certification is awarded at three levels of achievement, depending on the number of completed modules. Participants will be able to reflect on their own practice using our free online tools focused on self-assessment for teachers and for school leaders.

The program consistently and clearly refers to the AITSL Professional Standard for Principals and addresses the AITSL Leadership Profiles in detail. In addition to this it also examines the moral purpose of highly effective Principals and the ability to build and maintain productive relationships.

The program is designed to provide a comprehensive set of modules that thoroughly prepare our future leaders to ensure that they have the best possible start to a long and successful leadership career in education.

Who will benefit:

Primary and Secondary Principals and Deputy Principals, Heads of Learning Areas, Senior Teachers, Teaching and Aspirant Leaders.
