European Policy Network on School Leadership, Phase 1 (2011-2012)

Project: Research

Project Details


The European Policy Network on School Leadership (EPNoSL) is a four-year programme which aims to improve school leadership in Europe through a collaborative network in which members co-construct, manage and share knowledge intended to inform policy in the area of school leadership. EPNoSL is a partner-run consortium created in 2011, funded by a four-year grant (2011-2015) from the European Commission, Directorate-General for Education and Culture (Grant Agreement - EAC-2010-1388/1), within the framework of the Lifelong Learning Programme.

UH’s School of Education was a participant from its inception. During its first phase (2011-2012) Philip Woods was an Expert Adviser to the network. In its second phase (2012-2015), UH became an Institutional Partner with an expanded input to its work. The contribution of the School of Education’s team (Amanda Roberts and Philip Woods) to the network in the second phase comprises: two UK-based research studies - the Distributed Leadership and Social Justice (DLSJ) Study and the Leadership Standards for Social Justice in Scotland (LSSJ) Study (the latter being carried out with the University of Durham and the General Teaching Council for Scotland); contributing to a ‘Leadership for Equity’ scoping paper; participating in peer learning events and the international online forum; contributing to an exploration of the requirements of a framework for European educational leadership training; and contributing to the formulation of policy imperatives informed by research.
