Teacher leaders are crucial partners in facilitating school change that has a direct and meaningful impact on student learning. The middle leader certificate programme translates quality research around teacher leadership into a credible professional pathway. The programme identifies and nurtures the skills and behaviours needed to be an effective teacher leader who influences their school community.

Through our programme, middle leaders develop their skills and deepen their knowledge to become effective catalysts of school wide change. Our courses are rigorous, and are mapped to the standards for professional learning promulgated by Learning Forward in the United States, as well as leadership behaviours and attitudes promoted by the Department for Education in the United Kingdom.

To earn the ECIS Programme Certificate, learners must complete four courses from the choice of six below, with The Culture of Leadership as the core (mandatory) course. All courses are run face-to-face over two days.

The two day programmes will start at 8:30am, ending at 4:30pm each day (times approximate). To find out more about our Middle Leaders Certificate contact events@ecis.org.
