LSC Education International Leadership Research 2018

This summer LSC are launching the latest research into International School Leadership. The findings reveal key trends in how senior leaders identify, research and evaluate leadership job opportunities and insights into the rewards and challenges of working in the international sector. Over 200 International School Leaders from 62 countries participated in the research. The report has created a critical reflection tool, for International School Leaders as well as for Governors, Boards and School Owners, globally.

At LSC Education, we are committed to helping leaders transition successfully into new leadership roles in schools globally, and we are exceptionally proud of our long track record in helping to make this happen. Unsuccessful placements have wide reaching implications for school communities, as well as for individual school leaders and their families. Our continued commitment to making successful appointments was the motivation for our research. As Educationalists ourselves, we know just how critical it is for schools to appoint and retain the right leader for the appropriate stage in their school’s development.

We hope that leaders will use our findings as a tool to critically evaluate their own motivations and actions when job hunting. We believe that Boards and Governors will also benefit from using our findings to enhance their recruitment and assessment processes.


Our thanks go to all those Leaders who generously made time to participate and share with us their experiences, knowledge and ambitions. It is only by amassing and analysing their responses that we have been able to find fascinating key themes and patterns emerging. This shared experience will prove invaluable as a guide for future leaders,Governors and School Boards, for the common purpose of creating and sustaining outstanding schools.
