Programme description

To lead is to influence, to lead is to inspire. The educator is, therefore, a leader: his or her role goes far beyond the teaching-learning process, as he or she is continuously modelling behaviours and attitudes in the classroom and outside it, influencing the creation of a culture, a way of acting and being.

This is especially valid and essential in a 21st century that has reshaped this responsibility, given the multiple and growing sources of reference, influence and possibilities.

If it makes more and more sense to talk about leadership in the organisational world, it makes even more sense in the educational world. The current VUCA context (Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, Ambiguity) is present in the classroom and requires teacher-leaders who lead themselves, who know how to effectively manage relationships and communication with all the actors in the educational context and who have a strategic and systemic vision that allows them to better understand and manage this context.

The main objective of the Evoluciona programme is to strengthen and develop the educator's leadership skills, to walk a path from the inside out, from self-knowledge and self-management to the most important competencies for effective leadership - inside and outside the classroom. All of this taking into account at all times its impact on the different agents and actors present in the educational task: students, parents, teachers and institutions.

Programme structure

The aim of this block is to help you to achieve the main challenge that every person has throughout their lives: to discover themselves and be leaders of their own person, from clarifying their goals and objectives, to developing the emotional capacities necessary to do so.

The aim of this block is to help you develop your interpersonal leadership, focusing on the skills that a leader requires to lead others, within your educational environment and in society itself.

The objective of this block is to work on and develop the elements and capacities necessary to co-lead with a systemic vision, to understand group dynamics and to effectively influence the collective consciousness in order to strengthen the 'Systemic Altitude' of the Teacher as a Leader.

This block consists of a single project, based on the contents of one of the first three blocks of the programme (to be chosen by the teacher). The exercise will be reviewed by the students themselves by means of a peer assessment system assigned anonymously and randomly among fellow students in the programme. For this peer review, the following factors will be taken into account:

  • The promotion of spaces and processes of transformation and development of learners.
  • The definition of the strategy, the methodology and the means or tools through which the various exercises and activities will be implemented.
  • The expected end result of the project, in terms of lessons learned, main reflections and messages, impact on learners.
  • The correlation and coherence of the activities with the theme to be worked on.
  • The feasibility and ease of carrying out the project.

This block has three main objectives:

  • To provide participants with a space to understand the impact that they as leaders have on new ways of learning and the teacher-student relationship in order to stimulate and encourage the development of critical thinking, creativity and curiosity.
  • Working on personal leadership based on self-knowledge. One of the main challenges for all people is to walk the path of self-discovery, so that they can make decisions aligned with their values, beliefs and personal objectives.
  • Enhance the impact of each teacher's leadership in the classroom, taking into account their individual profile, and making use of their personal brand.
