The early focus of ICT training in schools was on developing teachers' computer skills. Recent developments have focussed on pedagogical objectives. Our previous work established a number of key personnel factors for what we called the integrative school, chief among which was the role of the principal in leading ICT development. More recent work by the authors has found that such leaders are relatively rare. Moreover, the research literature on school leadership barely mentions ICT as an issue for school managers. This suggests a requirement for ICT training dedicated to the needs and concerns of school leaders. We report on findings from an evaluation of a UK pilot scheme designed to address these concerns. Participants reported a significant impact on their ICT leadership. It is proposed that this approach to professional development may provide a model for similar initiatives in other educational systems.
