LEADERS IN EDUCATION PROGRAMME

The LEP is a full-time executive programme by the National Institute of Education (NIE), Singapore for talented educators selected by the Ministry of Education (MOE), Singapore for school leadership.

The programme focuses on innovation and the creation of new knowledge. It stimulates the participants’ thinking through a series of challenging learning experiences. These include working on a Creative Action Project (CAP), dialogues with senior Education Ministry officials and an overseas study trip. The main parties involved in this collaborative effort include NIE academics, MOE staff and principal mentors. The exposure offered during LEP serves as a platform to address a range of issues seen as critical to the development of participants’ leadership skills to new levels. These experiences allow them to better facilitate and lead in impactful ways at the schools that they will be posted to. Since its inception in 2000, LEP participants have the opportunity to gain first-hand knowledge on education initiatives by well-established institutes and corporations in other countries as well. Divided into four groups, each visit a country – this year, Canada, Estonia, Sweden and Switzerland, respectively.
