The Centre aspires to generate new knowledge for developing an understanding of school leadership in the Indian context. It is believed that cutting-edge and context-specific research would also feed into development of curriculum, and other interventions for school-based transformation. In addition, within this strand of work, there is also a focus on collection, documentation and dissemination of best leadership practices to all the stakeholders. In the past year, the Centre held an International Seminar on School Leadership: Policy, Practice and Research in November 2014 and an International Colloquium on School Leadership, jointly organized by NIEPA and University of Edinburgh, Scotland in February 2015. The InternationalColloquium was also followed by signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between NIEPA, New Delhi and the University of Edinburgh, UK for academic collaboration.
