Who is the International Confederation of Principals?        

ICP LogoThe ICP is the only global association that brings together the representatives of school principals organizations from all over the world to discuss the challenges facing school leaders wherever they work. The ICP was established in 1990 by Principal Associations from 10 countries - Australia, Canada, Germany, Ireland, Japan, The Netherlands, USSR, United Kingdom and United States of America - as the peak global organisation for principals. Today ICP reaches out across four regions of the globe. The ICP is non-political and non-sectoral with members from government and non-government sectors and from primary and secondary schools.
