The Teaching Trust Leadership Teams Program prepares principals and their teams to realize their vision of an aspirational school culture and create a robust plan for campus improvement. 


At Teaching Trust, we believe that all children can learn, and we know that you do, too. The overall goal of the Leadership Teams program is to increase and sustain student achievement. We believe the only way to ensure schools are making significant gains and sustaining academic growth is by building capacity within the school's leadership team. Focusing on the highest leverage actions, principals and team members will learn to lead with trust and influence in order to achieve results for kids. The program increases the technical competence of each school team while simultaneously increasing the team's effectiveness.
