Invitation to a special training workshop for Heads and Administrators of Schools

UNESCO's Innovative Practices in ICT in Education Project, supported by the Japanese Funds-in-Trust (JFIT), aims to identify, document, share and multiply innovative ICT in education practices. One component of the project is to conduct training workshops to share and scale-up selected innovations.

UNESCO is collaborating with the Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organization Regional Center for Educational Innovation and Technology (SEAMEO INNOTECH) to offer a special training workshop for school principals and administrators. The Instructional and Curricular Excellence in School Leadership for Southeast Asia (ICeXCELS) is developed by SEAMEO INNOTECH as a competency-based, multi-modal flexible learning, educational leadership courseware to enhance the capacity of elementary and secondary school heads and administrators to improve the quality of teaching and learning in their schools. Based on the Competency Framework for Southeast Asian School Heads, the course highlights general competency areas that describe what school heads are expected to do and improve on to make them more successful in performing their work. ICeXELS was awarded a Certificate of Commendation in 2008 by UNESCO's Innovative Practices in ICT in Education Project.

UNESCO is calling for school principals and administrators to participate in a two-day training workshop to be held in Bangkok, Thailand on 20-21 November 2008. The organizers will cover the cost of the training workshop and accommodation, but the participants will have to pay for their own travel expenses and other incidentals, and bring their personal laptops.

Due to the limited number of places, the selection of participants will be based on the responses to two questions:

  • Why should you attend the training course?
  • How can you use what you have learnt after completing the course?

Please complete and return the application form to Ms. Lay Cheng Tan at by 24 October 2008. All successful applicants will be notified by 31 October 2008.
