Why join our leadership program?

We set the highest standards of training

The ISLI curriculum is inspired by some of the best training institutions globally like New York Leadership Academy, Ontario’s Institute for Education Leadership, and KIPP School Leadership Program. ISLI works with the Akanksha Foundation for the curricular framework and on-board faculty support.

We work with diverse and high potential leaders

A typical cohort includes school owners, principals, head teachers, academic coordinators as well as ascensions in-charge. They come from low-income private and public schools.

We provide a highly customised program

Our program is based on adult-learning principles and is primarily self-led. Each School Leader designs their own School Development Plans with constant support from ISLI Program Managers.
