Instructional Leadership Program Application Form

Principals, vice-principals, school board consultants and coordinators (who are not responsible for supervising principals or vice-principals), and department heads (defined by the Teachers’ Provincial Agreement) are invited to apply for acceptance into the next cohort of the Nova Scotia Instructional Leadership Academy program, beginning in September. Please note: All applicants must be able to commit to two hours, on average, of practicum experiences each week during the span of each course. Practicum experiences vary, but all are school-based, and usually involve classroom visits and conversations with teachers.

Applications close April 30.

Please note: Recognizing that the application form has several areas requiring detailed written responses, applicants are strongly encouraged to complete the questions offline, prior to completing and submitting the online application.
