Meitheal is a participant-led leadership development programme that is responsive to the individual professional
needs of school principals. It draws upon the skills and techniques associated with coaching. A skilled facilitator
works collaboratively with small groups (4 – 6 participants) using a developmental model to enhance leadership
The Meitheal programme runs over a two-year period. The group typically meets each year for four sessions
lasting approximately two hours. Each group will agree the date and time of these sessions. During 2020-2021
the programme will begin online but will revert to face to face if this option become available.
Mutual trust and confidentiality form the basis of the programme.
The programme is underpinned by literature and research in the following areas:
● Social network theory
● Professional learning communities and communities of practice
