Faith School Leadership: A Neglected Sector of In-Service Education in the United Kingdom
Grace, Gerald
Professional Development in Education, v35 n3 p485-494 Sep 2009
This paper argues that the professional development and in-service educational needs of faith school leaders have been neglected by mainstream providers of continuing professional development programmes in the United Kingdom. Given the substantial presence of Church of England and Roman Catholic schools and colleges in the UK system and current plans for an increased number of Muslim, Jewish and Christian Evangelical schools, some positive response is necessary. The distinctive needs of faith school leaders (Christian, Muslim and Jewish) require the provision of continuing professional development and in-service courses that look seriously at the specific challenges of faith school leadership in contemporary conditions.
