Types: Article
Subjects: LB
The field of educational leadership has received significant attention in the past decade due\ud to a growing recognition of the role of effective leadership in improving schooling experience. The paper\ud presents findings from a study exploring school leadership preparation and development in\ud Commonwealth countries. Respondents from several countries that are members of the Commonwealth\ud Council for Educational Administration Management (CCEAM) participated in the study that explored\ud the nature of leadership development provision. Questionnaires and interviews were used to collect\ud data. The findings suggest that there is a variety of leadership learning provision and that the content\ud appears to have changed over the years. However, the degree to which this content is shaped by local\ud contextual experiences is questionable. The paper argues that a meaningful model of crosscultural\ud learning for leadership development is one that is informed by context specific experiences.
