Entrepreneurial Competences for School Leadership Teams

This seminar introduces an Erasmus+ Strategic Partnerships project entitled ‘Entrepreneurial Competences for School Leadership Teams'. This project investigates whether the quality and efficiency of entrepreneurial school leadership can be enhanced through a professional enquiry approach.

This two-year project involves leadership teams from both Primary and Secondary schools, working in collaboration with university research teams in Finland, Romania, Slovakia and the UK.

Changes in the education landscape demand educational leaders who are resourceful, opportunistic, creative, and risk-taking. The project has sought to develop innovative professional development opportunities for school leaders that entrepreneurial thinking and leadership ability in educational contexts with social and cultural benefits for the school and its communities. The seminar will report on the development of resources to help to address the Erasmus+ priorities of improving the leadership and management of schools across Europe.
