The 6th Global Educational Leadership Conference (GELC) is organised by the Academy of Principals (Singapore) and will be held from Monday 9 to Tuesday 10 March 2015. The aim of this conference is to provide insight into inter-related strands: the processes and dynamics of change and the leadership skills needed to succeed in leading and managing teacher performance, and delivering the best outcomes where the standards for teachers and school leaders are now explicitly stated. Leading, managing, and delivering effective educational change in an intensively political, social and economic environment is a challenge that all educational leaders face as a critical aspect of their roles and responsibilities. New policies and strategic directions imposed from outside and within systems are constantly evolving to challenge current mind-sets and skills.


The theme of our GELC 2015 is “The Intentional Leader” because leadership must have purpose as well as vision.  This is true whether it is leadership of a department, a whole level or an entire school. The target audience will be Principals, Vice-Principals, Heads of Departments, Subject Heads, Level Heads and educators who are involved in some form of educational leadership in their school. The conference provides opportunities for invaluable personal and professional networking.
