The purpose of this paper is to present the influence of school management from movements coming from the world of industry and business, and the transition from the TQM movement to the one of organisational learning.
The paper presents the findings of an exploratory research carried out in Greece, in order to detect both teachers' attitudes and the existence of the elements that could permit organisational learning. Finally, it proposes a framework of organisational learning in education based both on the creation of teachers' professional communities and on an organisational model composed by elements able to guarantee the institution's learning, feedback, development and evolution.
The paper insists on the need for a teacher‐led approach for school's transformation in a learning organisation.
The paper proposes a new concept of organisational learning based on a teacher‐led approach.
