February 21, 2019
BTC’s Leadership Center, launched in October
2018, was inaugurated on February 20, 2019, following the 10 year anniversary
celebration of the Bahrain Teachers College. His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin
Mubarak al Khalifa, Deputy Prime Minister, Chair of the Supreme Council for the
Development of Education and Training, inaugurated the center, which has
focused primarily on bridging research and practice for school improvement. The
focus on the center has been thus far on providing direct support to school
leaders presiding over schools that have been highlighted by the Bahrain
Quality Assurance Authority as needing improvement.
The Leadership Center was established with the
collaborative vision of the Office of the First Deputy Prime Minister, the
Ministry of Education, the Bahrain Quality Assurance Authority, and the BTC.
With a concentration on school quality transformation, the BTC and the Ministry
of Education are, through this center, jointly impacting school quality,
school-based professional development, and applied research for school improvement.
