For many students in WLSA member-schools, preparation for leadership roles should be seen as a natural developmental goal. This program aims to help student participants develop leadership competency across several important categories of knowledge, abilities, attitudes, and behaviours. Among competency areas, the ability to work in complicated cross-cultural settings is a vital one in the 21st century. Leading in such contexts is especially challenging. The program will therefore dedicate considerable time to the intersection of leadership and cross-cultural competence.
The WLSA Research Groups are made up of educational experts from around the world with diverse backgrounds, cultural differences and specializations. The variety of viewpoints from these group members provide well-rounded and beneficial research results, useful for every educational structure. WLSA’s Research Groups work as a team to investigate, develop, and research projects that benefit our associate schools.
The Research Group themes include:

WLSA recognizes the importance of continued professional development and training for staff to ensure the best educational experience for both student and teacher. We believe that investing in our teachers and staff members allows them to grow, enjoy their career, and give their students the best education possible.

There they receive truly international training from experienced teaching experts at leading schools.
