LAP Lambert Academic Publishing In this book, the author lists: Initial teacher training; Capacity building workshops; Management workshops; Continuous Professional Development-CPD; National In-Service Training College (NISTCOL) training programs; and Planning workshops at District and Provincial levels as prevailing methods of leadership preparation. It observes that educational leadership preparation in Zambia has depended mainly on initial teacher training which has not been enough. Being the case, the study presents primarily formal training as a requirement and further proposes Mentoring, Coaching, Shadowing/Internship, and Networking as alternative avenues for educational leadership preparation to go side by side with existing measures as well as the intended formal preparation. The book offers recommendations for stakeholders in the preparation of educational leaders and recommends that the Ministry of Education and related institutions support formal training programs to enhance educational delivery.
