Project description
In response to a shortage in teachers and school administrators, caused by a rapid increase of students, the Ministry of Education in Bhutan worked with St. Francis Xavier University (STFX) in Canada to strengthen school leadership for quality basic education. The project's two goals were to: build capacity of Bhutanese headmasters by offering them a graduate degree in Educational Leadership at STFX in Canada; develop and implement modules and other materials for an Education Leadership degree at the College of Education, Royal University of Bhutan (RUB) and to 'nationalise' the contents of the RUB graduate education programme. This component was carried in close collaboration between STFX and RUB faculty through ongoing team visits.
