School Leadership Program
Under the School Leadership Education Program supported by Sabancı Foundation, ERG aims to improve the school management practices of school administrators and administrative candidates. The trainings under this project were held in July 2010 in collaboration with the Ministry of National Education General Directorate of Staff and the Department of In-Service Training with the attendance of 25 school administrators from Izmir, Kars, Nevşehir, Şanlıurfa, Trabzon, and Van. Enka High School Deputy Head Mustafa Balkaş, who has carried out years of extensive work in the field of school leadership, delivered a module positioning the school deputy as the leader of the school’s learning-teaching processes and covered topics including “peer coaching” and “understanding through representation.” Participants studied the book titled Ten Traits of Highly Effective Principals and completed activities to help them develop a school leadership model. In addition, assessments were undertaken during the training in order to measure the impact of the pilot and improve future trainings under the project.
