Educational Leadership – towards common goals at school

Why do we need school leaders? How do they lead the school community towards common educational goals? To learn more, join our MOOC Educational Leadership in Finland. You will also enhance your leadership skills and your readiness to act as an educational leader.

Educational leadership is usually the responsibility of head teachers, school administrators and principals. The people running the school must have a good understanding of both the strategy of the institution and the daily lives of the students and teachers.

School leaders work with a wide range of stakeholders, like students, parents, teachers, and policy makers. They must also be up-to-date on legislation and regulations on education. Therefore, a competent leader needs diverse knowledge and skills,” says Minna Nykopp, a university teacher of educational sciences at JYUOpen.
