What is the International
Confederation of Principals?

The ICP is a global association of school leadership organisations. It has over 40 members, made up of school leadership associations. Each member is itself a major organisation that supports the professional development and work of school leaders.

We have formed a purposeful network which develops and encourages opportunities in an inclusive, affiliated, democratic manner.

The ICP represents over 200,000 school leaders across five continents and, as such, commands a unique global position as a major voice for school education. The ICP is non-political and non-sectarian.
