The Institute for Education Leadership (IEL) brings together representatives from Ontario’s principals’ associations, supervisory officers’ associations, councils of directors of education, the Ontario Association of Senior Business Officials, and the Ministry of Education to work in a collaborative partnership and model high-quality strategic leadership at the school, board, and provincial levels. Established in 2006 as a key support for the Ontario Leadership Strategy, the IEL plays a direct role in putting into practice policy and research on effective leadership to support student achievement and well-being.
The IEL is respected as the collective voice for the advancement of evidence-based leadership practices in Ontario, and is recognized outside Ontario as an innovative model for advancing system-wide leadership development that supports student achievement and well-being.
