Why is this initiative important for education in Ontario?
Successfully leading a coherent drive for district-wide education improvement is a leadership challenge unequalled in society. Education directors as system-wide leaders must have the capacity to capture the minds and hearts of all the diverse interests in their communities to recognize and embrace the necessary innovations and systemic and personal changes fundamental to achieving education improvement.
In order to ultimately provide the education their communities and country need to be successful in a globally competitive world, Directors of Education must be well versed in change leadership skills, understand and apply change management strategies and models, and be able to make effective use of a district's human and financial resources.

The experience develops the knowledge, practical skills and strategies required for the successful education system leadership delivering education excellence. The program features unique forums for advanced collaborative dialogue with public and private sector leaders.
