Transformative Educational Leadership Program – UBC TELP
How do you drive system change? UBC TELP inspires leaders to create a spiral of
positivity, deep learning, and innovative practice. TELP, currently in its 5th year, is a one-year, cohort-based program designed for educational change-makers who are motivated to lead system transformation in their schools, districts, and communities. Through a series of Friday evening and Saturday sessions, with facilitated online interactions throughout the year, TELP colleagues interact with innovative researchers, practitioners, and world-class scholars at UBC Vancouver.
They have worked extensively to support inquiry networks and leadership groups in BC, the Yukon, England, Catalonia, Sweden, and Australia. They are deeply committed to achieving equity and quality for all learners—and to networking for innovation and improvement across systems.
Since the beginning of TELP in 2015, more than 100 graduates have grown as educational leaders, and through an inquiry and research-based approach, have conducted leading edge work in their schools and districts, such as:
Much of this work is captured in the TEL Journal, where TELP graduates share stories of transformative leadership, and particularly, how using research in practice impacts learners. The TEL Journal is one way for graduates to stay networked, continue to learn from each other, and share their work internationally.

TELP was a rich opportunity to learn from outstanding colleagues, researchers from across the world, and be immersed in current research. I am grateful for the impact TELP has had on my work.”
– Teresa Downs, Gold Trail School District
