Educational Pioneer Program

Every year about 1,500 new teachers join the Israeli education system.
About 40% – many of whom have high or excellent profiles – leave within the first five years of their employment.
Among the reasons why high-quality teachers abandon the profession are: poor school environments and quality of management, a low social image of teachers, a lack of support and deep feelings of isolation, inadequate working conditions, and a lack of employments options and mobility.

The Solution

The Educational Pioneer Program locates and trains quality educators to become principals and take other leadership positions in Israeli schools.
Within the framework of the program young educators with high social awareness and a strong sense of motivation act to empower schools in the social and geographic periphery of Israel and to turn them into ground-breaking and innovative schools.
The program trains educators (or pioneers) over a five-year period that includes professional development and the formalization of an educational vision.
By the end of the process, the pioneers have satisfied the requirements to become school principals.
