Effectiveness of School Leadership and Management Development in Cameroon
This study focuses on the 'Effectiveness of School Leadership and Management Development in Cameroon'. The study reviewed relevant literature in respect to theories of leadership and approaches to school leadership development in the developing world and compares and contrasts this with that in the developed world, noting that in countries like Cameroon such evidence suggest that the in-service training for aspiring heads in schools is approached in a less structured national leadership framework than is now normal in more resource rich countries before setting out the proposed case study design of the research study. The outcomes of the literature search were integrated with interviews, documentary (qualitative) evidence and a Leadership and Management Development Questionnaire (quantitative) study to ultimately offer an appropriate mix of qualitative and quantitative methods to develop a robust, triangulated and nuanced understanding of school leadership development processes in Cameroon. It is intended that this study will provide robust information with which to inform policy for developing a national leadership framework for aspiring school leaders.
