Immersion (bilingual) School Leadership and Team Dynamics

Our schools cannot be excellent without strong, effective leadership. This four-part course endeavors to enhance the skills of coordinators and school leaders in our immersion/bilingual schools so they are better able to not only deal with the day-to-day of school operations but also build a community of learning and improve student achievement.

Each course will be a four-hour, practical exploration allowing coordinators to leave with strategies ready to use in their schools. The sessions will take place on Fridays from 13:00 to 17:00 at a facility in Campo Belo, São Paulo, SP.

Each participant must currently be employed in a leadership role in an immersion/bilingual/language school. This course is not intended for teachers who need initial training to become a coordinator. We will only accept 30 participants on the course.
