  2. 2. Recommendation 50: A virtual college of school leadership should be developed to improve leadership capacity at all levels within Scottish education. Follow SCEL on Twitter @TeamSCEL
  3. 3. From virtual to reality: Virtual: Almost or nearly as described, but not completely or according to strict definition. Not physically existing as such but made by software to appear to do so. Denoting particles or interactions with extremely short lifetimes and (owing to the uncertainty principle) indefinitely great energies, postulated as intermediates in some processes.

  9. 9. Framework for Educational Leadership All teachers are expected to be leaders in a number of important ways. They are expected to lead learning for, and with, all learners, with a clear focus on improving outcomes for everyone (pedagogical leadership). All teachers are expected to develop their capacity to lead colleagues and other partners to achieve change, for example through specific projects or development work (middle leadership). Teachers in, or aspiring to, leadership roles within education are expected to lead teams, initiate and manage change effectively and develop leadership capacity in others (school leadership). All leaders have a responsibility for encouraging collaborative partnerships to ensure positive outcomes for all children and young people (system leadership). Follow SCEL on Twitter @teamScel
