About PTC Instructional Supervision Courses

Teacher quality is the most essential component of an effective school. The role of the principal is critical in setting the standard for effective teaching, providing opportunities for continuous improvement, monitoring and evaluating progress. This set of skills is so essential that the PTC now addresses them in two separate courses.

Both courses will address the skill set in the context of how to connect and use the processes of supervision, evaluation and professional development to promote teacher growth and maximize student learning and performance. Both will also emphasize focusing on results-driven instructional leadership in the context of a professional learning community.

Either of the courses may be considered as one of the of the four Essential Skills courses leading to the 'Certificate of International School Leadership'. And either course may also be counted toward the 'Advanced Certificate of International School Leadership'.
