Building capacity for improvement at whole school level is an indispensable aspect of sustainable and transformational leadership practice in education. This model for leading innovation and change sought to facilitate shared knowledge construction, giving teachers as both learners and leaders a voice. Participants undertook action research within the school setting through reflection in, and on, action as a substantive feature of this inquiry led approach to professional development. Their case studies allowed a critical review and authentication of the ir pathways to innovation and change. Data (case studies) authenticated leading innovation and change as a successful approach to enhancing school effectiveness. Thus through these case studies in transformational leadership, learners (leaders, teachers and students) assumed greater control of their environment and their own and others' learning. Practitioner research - learning reflectively through a holistic approach to school transformation, characteristically is seen to be developing self-supporting citizens (learners).
