Morrocan HE Leaders

The Moroccan Higher Education (HE) sector is facing significant change as it moves to enhance accessibility and quality for students, and impact for its economy and society. The reform and restructuring of the HE system in Morocco needed to deliver on these objectives is being slowed by a lack of leadership capacity. Universities in Morocco need to build the capacity of their leaders for governance, strategic planning and management in order to deliver these reforms. The project addresses the need for development for university leaders in Morocco through the creation and implementation of a National Leadership Development Centre (NLDC) and an associated certificated national leadership development programme (NLDP).

National Leadership Development Centre

is a nationally recognized institution that serves as a dedicated hub for the training and development of leaders and administrators in the realm of higher education. It is dedicated to nurturing and enhancing the leadership skills and capabilities of professionals responsible for the governance, management, and administration of universities, colleges, and other higher education institutions. The primary mission of the NLDC is to support the growth, innovation, and effective leadership of these institutions.

National Leadership Development Program

is a meticulously structured initiative with a national scope, purposefully created to offer an all-encompassing approach to leadership training and development tailored to professionals occupying leadership roles in the higher education sector. The fundamental objective of this NLDP is to empower current and future leaders with the essential knowledge, skills, and competencies required to excel in leadership roles within universities, colleges, and other academic institutions. The program is thoughtfully designed to augment their capacity to navigate the distinctive challenges and intricacies inherent to leadership in the higher education landscape.
