The objective of the ILI is to establish an instructional leadership program, grounded in the best global practice in instructional leadership training, and adapted to the South African context;  to develop a model for the training and development of school leaders, jointly delivered by Relay Graduate School of Education;  to give selected South African school principals the needed skills to be instructional leaders at their schools; and to establish a permanent, sustainable South African entity, which will deliver accredited training to successive cohorts of school leaders on an ongoing basis.
