How to score a perfect 10 in leadership learning program design: an international search
How to best address the professional learning needs of those aspiring to leadership roles in schools is an im-portant issue. Robust evaluation practices are needed to determine the quality of current provisions and identify where improvements can be made. This paper considers the quality of professional learning programs drawn from five countries around the world using a set of ten criteria distilled from a synthesis of compelling international lead-ership learning research. We show the potential of the ten criteria for judging the quality of professional learning programs using examples from the five countries. These examples provide a launching pad from which we pose questions and consider the potential use and ap-plicability of such criteria in making design decisions about the quality and value of professional learning programs in a range of national and international contexts.
