Course Description

The content of the PQP Part 2 is organized into five domains as reflected in the Leadership Framework for Principals and Vice-Principals found in Putting Ontario’s Leadership Framework Into Action/ Mise en application du cadre de leadership de l’Ontario.

Course Outline

The five leadership domains used to organize the content and guide the Leadership Practicum are: Setting Directions, Building Relationships and Developing People, Developing the Organization, Leading the Instructional Program, and Securing Accountability. The PQP is informed by the Amenagement Linguistique: A Policy for Ontario’s French-Language Schools and Francophone community, the First Nation, Metis and Inuit Education Policy Framework and Putting Ontario’s Leadership Framework into Action/Mise en application du Cadre de leadership de l’Ontario.

Learner Outcomes

The program expectations, leadership domains, program content, and the Leadership Practicum are interrelated and designed to support candidates in the development of relevant knowledge, skills, and attitudes required for the role of principal.
The Leadership Practicum is a required and integral component of the PQP and is a structured, educational leadership experience. Candidates must develop a Leadership practicum proposal before being recommended for Part 1 and successfully complete the Leadership Practicum experience before being recommended for Part 2.
