About Making HEADway

Making HEADway was conceived, designed and launched by The HEAD Foundation in 2020, as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The pandemic made clear the urgent need for customised and contextualised capacity building opportunities for educators in the region. The sector was evolving rapidly, and educators, particularly in less-resourced parts of Southeast Asia, craved quality training opportunities.

In each series, leading academics and exemplary educators in the region share strategies and actionable tips on immediately responding to school closures, on future-proofing our schools and education systems so as to build back better.

In this first series of 2021, school leaders from Southeast Asia discussed how educators can build and maintain a positive school culture in challenging circumstances.
