POSSIBILITIES OF KNOWLEDGE TRANSFER IN THE PRACTICAL TRAINING OF EDUCATIONAL LEADERS IN THE CZECH REPUBLIC

Abstract:

Changes in society and rapid technological development are linking professional qualifications with lifelong learning. The ability to respond quickly to changes in the competitive environment depends on knowledge, which is one of the most important types of capital. Knowledge has become an important part of all organisations and determines their success or failure. Its management, development, sharing and use within an organisation is essential for the competitiveness of the organisation. In an organization, it is not possible for one person to perform all the tasks leading to the achievement of the set objectives, so there is delegation. Aspiring school principals are expected to have the same knowledge and skills as their predecessors and to acquire many professional skills in a short period of time. In the preparation of educational leaders, who are not systematically prepared for their profession prior to taking up their posts in the Czech Republic, it is necessary to look for ways to appropriately manage and transfer explicit and tacit knowledge from more experienced school principals to those starting out, using elements of experiential reflective learning. The results show that mostly work activities requiring explicit knowledge are delegated by the school principal to his/her subordinates, while work activities requiring tacit knowledge are mostly carried out by the school principal himself/herself. The research question is: What are the ways in which knowledge can be transferred from experienced principals to students, future school principals, in management practice?
