Applications are currently open for the  Microsoft Innovative School’s programme. The Microsoft Innovative Schools program is "a leading change management program for district and school leaders to drive their own innovation processes while identifying partners, technologies and environments that further improve student learning."

Schools with a track-record of inspirational leadership, innovation and successful implementations of change are invited to apply to become Microsoft Innovative Schools. Through this programme, schools have an opportunity to learn from other schools’ successful implementations of technology; leaders will learn strategies for building capacity to improve teaching practices; and practical strategies for reaching learner goals will be shared.

As a member, participants will become part of an exclusive one-year program recognizing educators and  school leaders who are using technology to transform education. This programme connects school leaders and educators in South Africa with other school leaders and educators from around the world. Application deadline is September 30, 2013. School leaders who are selected will also have the opportunity to attend the Partners in Learning Global Forum, our premier event bringing together more than 600 of the most innovative educators, school leaders, education leaders, and government officials from 80 countries.
