    • Education

In this episode of the Tes International podcast we head to Saudi Arabia to chat with Dr Steffan Sommer, director general of Misk Schools to discuss the school's approach to teaching leadership as part of its standard curriculum.
He explains how the course was developed with links to the High Performance Learning framework, why there is a focus on both subtle, in-lesson ideas, and specific leadership classes, and the need to ensure this work develop leaders ready for the 21st-century.
He also outlines why the school has appointed an independent researcher to evaluate the work with the intention of releasing findings on best practice in this area to help other schools develop similar frameworks in the future - both in the country and around the world.
