How does it Work?
School Leaders can create ripples of change and ensure quality education for every child in school. All they need is the support to create systemic change and sustain the improvement of their schools. EXCEL aims to redefine and improve the quality of education in schools through a multi-staged School Improvement Framework.
A School Innovator will lead the process of transformation by setting up learning centers, conducting leadership and capacity building sessions for school leaders while creating communities of practice to get multiple stakeholders involved in the process.
“I witness transformation when a school leader comes up to me and says, “I’ve realized that there’s a lot to improve on. Tell me. Where can I start?” The ability to take that first step towards making a lasting change – that’s why School Leaders are the way to go if we want to see transformation not just happening, but sustaining itself. A rewarding experience is all I can promise from this one of a kind journey. Join us and help our school leaders make the difference in the lives of every child!
