Enhancing leadership in education

The DBSA sponsors a school leadership development programme through Partners for Possibility (PfP).

To promote its development of social infrastructure the Bank is contributing to the development of thirty school principals. This will facilitate improved leadership in schools enhancing education of the learners, improving relationships among the school community stakeholders and accelerating community development. It is intended that the quality of education from quality leadership will have long term impact on employability and better quality of lives for impacted families and communities.

The initiative is in line with the NDP which calls for the Department of Basic Education to align the interests of all stakeholders to support the common goal of achieving good educational outcomes that are responsive to community needs and economic development. Community involvement in any community development project is critical. The PfP programme encourages engagement of community and volunteerism of the DBSA leadership and staff, to offer their skills and time.
