Welcome to the official website of the Institute for Educational Administration & Leadership- Jamaica (IEAL-J), a non-government, not for profit organisation committed to research and consultancy services in the fields of educational administration & leadership. Our mission is to further the understanding of educational administration & leadership in Jamaica and to make a positive and tangible difference to the development of Educational Leadership potential at various levels throughout the island. The Institute for Educational Administration & Leadership- Jamaica was founded in November 2012 as a professional society for persons working in education related professions and anyone interested in the fields of educational administration, management and leadership.
In partnership with its valued members, the IEAL-J presents two Public Lectures annually, which are usually based on high quality research, and focused on a topical issue. Public Lecturers are by invitation only and are usually led and managed by one of our four Research Interests Groups (RIGs), namely: Educational Administration & Social Justice STEM Education Curriculum & Innovation Health, Well-being & Society
The IEAL-J provides seminars and workshops to education officers, school leaders and teachers on a range of topics, which are intended to deepen and widen their leadership skills and understanding. Previous seminars/ workshops include: “Skills required for 21st Century School Leaders/ Leadership: Evidence from Research” “Emotional Intelligence and School Leadership: What’s the Connection?”
