Teachers as leaders

If teachers show good leadership in and outside the classroom they increase a pupil’s a chance of quiet study time, focus and to learning development. Through the project “Teachers as Leaders” teachers are given tools that provide students the prerequisites for this. Research shows that a teacher’s skills, ability and commitment are the factors that most strongly influence a student’s performance. The aim of the project is to develop teacher leadership skills in and outside the classroom. Leadership skills that take advantage of a pupil’s potential and increase his/her chance of quiet time to study, focus and learning developing as well as meeting objectives. The project desires to foster new ways to develop schools where the impact of teacher participation in further education results in a direct, lasting and significant impact on student achievement and equality.
