The core focus of the Lead Like a Champion Programme is around instructional leadership – leadership that promotes quality teaching and learning.

In this Programme Edufundi partners with the members of the School Management Team (SMT) to build their capacity to lead their school in a way that will improve learning. Our focus of building a strong SMT/school partnership is centred around the following objectives:


Objective 1

To create conditions within the school that enable effective teaching and learning.


Objective 2

To embed good practices throughout the school, thereby creating a school culture which includes routines, expectations, beliefs and values nurtured by the SMT in order to support openness to teaching and learning.


Objective 3

To build ownership and unlock agency, which is the ability of an individual or group to act on a situation and change it.
