School Leadership Interest Group

Welcome to the School Leadership Interest Group! Here you will find resources to help you as you plan, implement, monitor and re-plan the way in which schools are organised and run to create enabling learning and teaching environments in Africa.

The resources shared here proceed from an understanding that building the individual capacities of individual teachers is only part of the challenge to create and maintain quality school education. If good teachers are to be effective, they need to work in environments characterised by a supportive and caring culture of learning, teaching and service.


We have begun with a limited set of related resources which we hope you will be able to help us to build further. We invite you to join us in developing this site, or to be in touch with your questions and comments! Contact us.

As a start, Saide is making available two comprehensive sets of resources developed from South African experience of leading and managing schools.
