The introduction of outcomes-based education has necessitated a change in the leadership structures within schools. New education policies have been introduced that are intended to delegate far more authority and responsibility for leadership and management to school leaders than has been the case before. This book draws on the Teacher In-service Project’s experience of working with school leaders who have been engaged in the process of making the adjustment. It challenges school leaders to reflect critically on their own approaches to leadership.The book offers a learning process, rather than merely providing tips or describing facts. It is a companion text to The Learning School, as it offers a practical application of the theory and principles espoused in that text.

• Part 1: Making the difference: understanding leadership and management
• Part 2: The holistic leader
• Part 3: Understanding your school
• Part 4: Leadership in action
• Part 5: Creating a vision for your school
