About the Webinar

Promotional video (English only):

This webinar focuses on an innovative international movement to support teachers as agents of change. It arises out of the collaboration between many partners in the International Teacher Leadership (ITL) initiative formed in 2008 to advocate for non-positional teacher leadership and build programmes of support to enable and empower teachers to lead change in their schools. The underlying philosophy, together with practical tools and strategies was developed in the UK over many years by David Frost working closely with teachers and school principals in the HertsCam Network.

In this webinar, we aim to discuss the aforementioned theme and participate in a discussion with all guests about the potential for supporting non-positional teacher leadership to transform professional cultures in education systems globally. We hope to also learn from participants about comparable experiences in their countries.

Anyone is eligible to participate. Professionals and experts who work in, or have an interest in, international education and development are specially invited to attend the webinar. To be able to access the webinar, you need to register in advance.
