Next steps

The principles identified by this report should be used by the Ministry of Education to improve the contracting of pedagogical leadership, as well as its professional development and support of AE. In addition, the Ministry should work with AE clusters to address, as much as possible, the various challenges to pedagogical leadership identified in this report.

Managing schools and their AE providers should use this report to review the quality of their pedagogical leadership. A key aspect of this review should be the extent to which pedagogical leadership in their cluster aligns to the principles found in this evaluation.
