Delegation visits for School Leaders

In order to inspire and lead, we believe it is fundamental for school leaders to visit schools around the world with different contexts and teaching practices to think critically about how education systems work, and how they might be improved.

A Leadership Delegation is an educational travel experience that offers school leaders the opportunity to see education in action and importantly, inspire ways for your school to improve by learning from your peers. The delegation will include school visits, meetings with local education colleagues, an immersive cultural experience and a local GSA Conference. During the visit, school leaders will have the opportunity to meet with potential partner schools and establish those transformational, meaningful partnerships.

The delegation is included in and central to our transformation programmes; one of the key rewarding, professional development experiences that is perfect for developing the role as an International Coordinator or research for leadership.

Enquire today about the next trips in October and November 2024.

About the itinerary

  • You will be in a group of 5-10 delegates for between 3 to 5 days (on average).
  • School visits – you will be welcomed by colleagues and given a tour of the school and introduced to staff and students. Here you will learn about the school’s curriculum, observe lessons, discover new teaching approaches and discuss potential partnership opportunities.
  • Local GSA Conference – you will be invited to attend a high-profile event/round table with delegates, partner schools, education experts and education ministers in attendance. Here you will present your school and compare different pedagogical approaches to learning. Local teachers/schools will also be invited to purchase a ticket to attend.
  • Cultural immersion – learn about the country’s culture and local area.
  • Networking – get to know your peers and build relationships during dinners and events hosted by the GSA.

This experience of going to see how education is delivered in China has been phenomenal.
