Call for additional ELN Co-coordinator
The ICSEI Educational Leadership Network (ELN) is for leaders at all levels: in practice, policy and research. The network is open to everyone interested in matters of management and leadership in the educational realm. The aims of the network are to:

  • Share and advance the creation of knowledge in the field of educational leadership, drawing on perspectives from around the globe.
  • Facilitate networking and collaboration between professionals, policy makers, and researchers in the field of educational leadership.
  • Offer a unique platform for discussion, dialogue, support, debate and collaboration between interested groups.

At the moment, the ELN is led by two co-coordinators, Paul Campbell (ESF Sha Tin Junior School/ University of Glasgow) and Dominique Klein (University of Marburg). To further enhance the work of the network, we are looking to bring on board an additional co-coordinator. 

The role involves working as a coordination team to facilitate the work of the network in line with its aims, as well as to contribute to the work of ICSEI more broadly as required and in collaboration with the board. In particular, the coordination team acts as a liaison between the network members and ICSEI and further develops the network by organising sessions with specific themes at the ICSEI Congress, hosting events for the network between congresses, and communicating with the coordinators of the other ICSEI networks on a regular basis.

ICSEI is a global community collaborating for enhanced quality, equity, and excellence in education, related to school effectiveness and improvement. ICSEI’s purpose is to have an impact on the quality of education by providing an international forum for researchers, policy makers, and practitioners. Our community comes together to:

  • share ideas,
  • conduct and promote research,
  • develop knowledge, policies, and practices,
  • innovate as world-class leaders in enhancing the quality and equity of education for all people around the world.

ICSEI strives to be a community that is internationally inclusive for all its members. ICSEI further endeavours to ensure that every member and participant has an equal, unhindered opportunity to fully participate and engage with ICSEI Congresses and other activities, regardless of cultural, religious, racial/ethnic, and socio-economic backgrounds, sexual orientation, or gender, in a safe space of intellectual openness, respect, and the free exchange of evidence and ideas. ICSEI embraces diversity and recognises it as a source of strength and value for all.
If you are an ICSEI member and this sounds of interest to you, please complete the following form with your details and statement of interest by Monday 30th November 2020:
