The launch of the Institute for
Educational Leadership is another
giant step in the trar.:I.:.ii,,,i .. ... I

venture between the Ministry of Education, Science
& Technology, The -.:I'i- 'i 1. :', of The
Bahamas and the Ministry of Public Se vice will
provide educational leadership training to serving
and aspiring School Administrators.

School Administrators have the awesome
responsibility of empowering teachers rnd other
school personnel to deliver quality service to
primary and secondary schools. Through the
effective leadership of school administrators and
the quality delivery of instruction students are
placed on a firm foundation and given he sound
preparation they will require to lead productive lives
while allowing for their special gifts and talents.

Such training would enable administrators to
manage schools in New Providence and the Family
Islands more effectively. In addition to equipping
our administrators with a broad range of education
and management skills, the Institute will offer
certification, re-certification and advanced
graduate Certificate and Diploma programmes.

I am confident that the Institute will grow from
strength to strength and that its progress will
be sustained over the years in national, regional
and international academic circles, I take this
opportunity to express my deep satisfaction, and to
highly commend the Advisory Committee, Parents,
Employers, District Superintendents, Curriculum
Officers. School Administrators and Teachers for
their participation and input in the d velopment
of this timely initiative. In this sp-rit, please
accept my best wishes for the continued growth
and development of the Institute for -ducational
