Abstract

This research explored the leadership capability of principals in intermediate schools in Kuwait by examining the preparation and development programmes that were available to them. Ten intermediate school principals were interviewed to identify the qualities that they considered school principals needed to lead public schools in Kuwait, whether or not their own preparation, induction and continuing support were sufficient and their suggestions for what else was needed. The interviews revealed that principals in Kuwait are not prepared well for their positions due to the inadequacy (and absence) of formal preparation programmes, relevant learning experiences, induction procedures and continuing support. Participants identified a number of different experiences and activities that would help develop their practice in leading public schools in Kuwait and would help others in similar circumstances.
