Training Principals and Educational Supervisors

The changes taking place in every aspect of today’s world have a powerful and immediate influence on the nature and function of professional educators, whose role includes the ability to mediate between students and the world around them. To address this challenge, the educational system must concern itself with developing, supporting and improving its most important resources: teachers, principals, supervisors and counselors. Programs address issues such as: the changing role of the school principal; empowerment of classroom teachers; staff development and advancement; evaluation processes. 


Among the main issues in the training course are:

- Promoting professional-development teaching in such a way as to prepare personnel for the future in a systematic yet flexible manner
 
- Training future-oriented pre-service and in-service teaching staff qualified to meet the needs of the urban education environment 5, 10, and 20 years down the road
 
- Transforming the Teaching Development Center into a proactive, innovative-based organization
 
- Facilitating progressive thinking leading to educational breakthroughs
 
- Prototyping, developing, and implementing new teaching paradigms, methods, and tools
 
- Creating a lively, warm, and stimulating professional home for teaching staff
 
- Providing space, context, process, and incentive for an ongoing community- wide conversation concerning education in general and teaching-staff development in particular
 
- Encouraging relevant stakeholders—including teachers, parents, the business sector, senior citizens, artists, municipal officeholders, and children themselves—to play an active role in creating a better education system
