Educational leaders - whether in schools, colleges or higher education - are challenged with steering unprecedented change: educational management has never been more demanding. Within the context of a new 'Learning Age' and the Teacher Training Agency's National Standards, this book explores many of the key issues facing those both aspiring to and already involved in leadership and management - whether at middle or senior levels. While focusing particularly on schools and colleges, this book evaluates issues increasingly central to leadership in a variety of professional educational settings: e.g. school improvement, innovation, teamwork, organizational culture, professional development, motivation and the nature of leadership. In identifying key concepts, it scrutinises possible management strategies within a changing policy context which is increasingly focused around standards, accountability and reputation. The book utilises research evidence to illuminate the practices, challenges and problems facing educationists and endeavours to overcome the perceived gap between practice and research to create an integrated approach to leadership and management development: one which both supports and stimulates managers' professional development aspirations.
