University of Cambridge International Examinations is hosting the first Cambridge Leaders’ Seminar for Principals and Deputy Principals from across Sri Lanka on 26 June 2012. The Seminar, to be held at Taj Samudra, Colombo, will highlight Cambridge’s efforts to support school leaders by providing them with the skills to deliver the best educational experience for their students.
The theme of the seminar is ‘The impact of leadership on teaching and learning’ and reflects our ambition to support school leaders by providing them with the skills to deliver the best educational experience for their students. Mr. John Guy, who has recently been appointed Senior Education Advisor to Cambridge International Examinations, will be present on the occasion to address the audience on ‘How does leadership impact teaching?’
