Educational leadership is a specialist field. School leader is a profession. Evolving demands of the community, the growing pupil diversity in a continuously changing world and teachers with their own ideas about good education are all challenges that have to be met in a complex organisational and administrative context.
Educational executives need to continually develop themselves professionally in order to lead educators through these challenges and help them find their way. In short, they need to create an environment in which pupils can learn what they need to know and learn it well.
The main purpose of educational leadership is to further enhance student comprehensive learning and equity, be it through individual leaders of differing levels or collaboration between educators and students.
