About the course

In the rapidly changingworld,many institutions of our society are passing through a challenging phase. The situation is evenmore complex and critical for educational institutions, particularly for schools. What happens in schools today is likely to determine what will happen in our society in future. It also seems to be true that often there are no definite or perfect answers for the issues being faced by schools today. It is our contention that the principal of a school has the most pivotal role in shaping the destiny of the school. As the administrative and academic head, the principal has a unique leadership rolewhich can be immensely challenging and highly rewarding at the same time. However, for effectively responding to the challenges, an exchange of ideas and practices is critical. The programme will focus on the multiple roles and responsibilities of the school principal, provide space to examine issues thatmostprincipals face today,andfacilitate evolving a strategic response for a better future for schools.
