CBSE school principals asked to undergo leadership training

The Central Board of Secondary Education has asked principals of over 13,500 schools in the country, which follow CBSE curriculum, to train in developing effective leadership and school management qualities.

In one of the biggest initiatives taken by the CBSE, the principals, vice-principals, head masters and head mistresses will compulsorily spend at least 7 days a year to learn a range of skills and undergo behavioural training.

The flagship 5-day behavioural programme on Leadership and School Management would be offered in both residential and non-residential format.

According to a CBSE official spokesperson, "In keeping with the changing times, we believe school principals too need to expand their leadership capability to manage the entire education process.

"The leadership and school management programme will empower them to play a bigger role in leading their teams, managing conflict and to improve the overall education process," the spokesperson said.

Santhosh Babu, founding managing director of c (ODA) said, "We are delighted to partner this breakthrough initiative of CBSE."

He said that the 5-day two-part programme had the potential to make an impact on the vision and values of teachers and to manage the education process in schools that prepare future generations of rising India.
