In a rapidly changing world, many institutions of our society are passing through a challenging phase. The situation is even more complex and critical for educational institutions, particularly for schools. What happens in schools today is likely to determine what will happen in our society in the future. It also seems to be true that often there are no definite or perfect answers for the issues being faced by schools today. It is our contention that the principal of a school has the most pivotal role in shaping the destiny of the school. As the administrative and academic head, the principal has a unique leadership role that can be immensely challenging and highly rewarding at the same time. However, for effectively responding to the challenges, an exchange of ideas and practices is critical. The programme will focus on the multiple roles and responsibilities of the school principal, provide space to examine issues that most principals face today and facilitate evolving a strategic response for a better future for schools.

This programme, the 24th in the series, draws from in-depth and extensive research conducted by IIMA faculty about schools in the Indian context. It utilises a mix of participative pedagogy that includes context-specific case studies from schools across the country, structured exercises, role-play, group discussions and presentations. The programme will provide adequate opportunities for participants to discuss and examine their current practices, share their experiences and learn from each other.

Principals of senior secondary schools (with classes up to XII) affiliated with state, national or international boards. A few individuals with a background in managing schools or being promoters of schools may be considered on a case to case basis.
