The Advanced Diploma in Education: Educational Leadership and Management, was formerly known as Advanced Diploma in School Management.
It is a one-year field-based programme meant to facilitate the change process in schools and bring about an improvement in the quality of school management and governance.
The programme targets serving and aspiring head teachers. The programme recognises the key role of head teachers as pedagogical leaders in school improvement and in supporting the work of AKU-IED graduates.
It is expected that variations of this programme will be conducted in other areas served by AKU-IED and others in bringing about school improvement.
