EPNoSL VIP - the Virtual Platform of the European Policy Network on School Leadership

As a member of EPA or a person interested in parental involvement you are a VIP for EPNoSL, so join the Virtual Platform to
-          access resources on school leadership,
-          watch our webinars and gain up-to-date information on what is happening in the field of school leadership in Europe,
-          join the discussions and speak with school heads, trainers, academic experts,
-          learn from others and share your experience on the topic you choose,
-          influence policy.

The aim of EPNoSL – a partnership of ministries of education, research institutions, associations and capacity building organisations in 22 EU member states – is to facilitate and stimulate high level cooperation between educational researchers, policy makers and practitioners with the aim of improving school leadership in EU countries.
The knowledge management activities of EPNoSL aim to enhance knowledge exchange, information sharing and facilitate networking between different stakeholder groups both at the national and international level. 
To achieve this aim EPNoSL launches a Virtual Platform which allows the different actors of school leadership (school heads, teachers, trainers, academic experts, policy makers, etc.) to interact, share and learn through a series of online seminars. This year EPNoSL VIP webinars will focus on presenting
·         policy toolsets designed to enable and facilitate reflection on policy action planning across the EU, and
·         case studies on national good practices in school leadership for equity.
The discussion following the presentations will be facilitated by policy-makers or experts who have direct experience with policy, and will aim to provide room for reflections on how the presented tools and good practices may be used to improve school leadership policy.
