Leading to Success

Two experienced inspectors talk to four leaders of post-primary schools, three principals and a vice-principal, who, in the interests of all of their learners, led their schools successfully through a demanding period of improvement in leadership, provision and standards.
The provision in two schools had been evaluated by inspectors as satisfactory, one with unsatisfactory leadership.   Two other schools had been evaluated as less than satisfactory, and were placed by the Department of Education into a supportive process of formal intervention.  Over three to four years, the schools saw the evaluation of their overall effectiveness improve – up to two performance levels in most cases.
The challenges in each school were different, yet all four leaders have some important lessons to share about what it takes to lead to success.

The following Programme is the first in the series. To view all the programmes click here!
