Schools have immense potential to serve as spaces for teachers to flourish, learn and collaborate. There is nothing more powerful than a group of reflective practitioners opening up their legacy of years of teaching experience to other practicing teachers as live, experiential labs of learning. This exchange of learning provides a strong foundation for novice teachers and carves a pathway for mentor teachers to develop as Instructional Leaders.

I Am A Teacher’s Certificate Programme in Instructional Leadership (CPIL) is for highly effective educators who make learning deeper and more meaningful for students - Leadership grounded in a personal theory of teaching and learning that stems from classroom experience.

A four-month-long intensive blended programme, CPIL helps school leaders build upon their prior teaching experience to learn how to support teachers in a school setting. The focus is on collaborative curriculum development and the skills and strategies that can scaffold deeper learning for teacher cohorts. Upon successful completion of the programme, instructional Leaders continue to use, expand and refine their skills by becoming adept coaches of their organisations and beyond by turning their schools into a learning laboratory.
