Leadership Competencies for Learner-Centered, Personalized Education

Jobs for the Future and the Council of Chief State School Officers

The Leadership Competencies for Learner-Centered, Personalized Education (Leadership Competencies) serve as a first step in identifying the knowledge, skills, and dispositions leaders must master in order to build and sustain learner-centered, personalized schools and learning environments. The hope is that these competencies serve as a helpful step toward building present- and future-focused systems of education in which each student can fulfill their learning potential and head into postsecondary life ready to succeed in their careers and communities.

To develop and support effective leaders in education today, we must renew and refocus our attention on learning and the learner. While this may not sound radical, if we scratch the surface of this call, we'll find a need for transformational leadership.
