A five-month programme, it has been designed to build and develop leadership capabilities and accelerate improvements in teaching and learning in Qatar.

Sheikha Noof Ahmed Al-Thani, Executive Director of the Education Development Institute, commented: “At EDI we believe that this programme provides a valuable opportunity for our Qatar Foundation school leaders to be supported in fostering improvements in teaching effectiveness, which will ultimately improve students’ learning. This initial session has provided a solid foundation for our school leaders to implement systematic improvements, and we are very excited to progress with this programme.”

Over the coming months, participants will receive support through in-school coaching related to their unique change projects.They will take part in online ‘community of practice’ sessions to exchange ideas and share experiences with their peers. A second intensive session organised to take place from 1st to 2nd May will focus on developing leadership capabilities.
