The IEPA intends to adopt in the near future:
The career professional development programmes are designed as series of periodic workshops, conferences, short courses, and seminars to provide a frame within which the knowledge, skills, and attitudes acquired of educational administrators, leaders, managers and planners can be reinforced through the integration of theoretical knowledge and artistry. The career professional development programme focuses on honing the skills of practitioners in addressing problems of practice.
The professional development sessions ordinarily entail face-to-face interactions between facilitators and participants. The programme content are delivered through problem-based learning, clinical experience, and field-based internship. Participants are encouraged to form study cohort groups to facilitate peer learning and exchange of best operating practices.
The research activities of IEPA is to inform policy development and implementation. The IEPA, in consultation and in collaboration with key stakeholders identify and research into contemporary issues in educational administration, leadership, management, and planning. The outcomes of the research activities culminate in the production of case study materials to inform teaching, further research, and policy formulation.
