KingsU launches new LQS certificate for working educators


The King’s University has launched a new Leadership Quality Standard (LQS) certificate for K-12 educators who wish to move into administrative positions such as principal or vice-principal roles. The program teaches educators how to lead in a manner that ensures students and school personnel can flourish. Though designed for teachers in Alberta, KingsU stated that all teachers with a BEd and at least three years of teaching experience are welcome to take the program. “We see education as a professional vocation shaped by hope,” said KingsU Dean of Education Dr Henry Algera. “We aim to equip our students to serve by enabling school leaders to build their capacity and develop connections between faith and future leadership practices.”
