VALIENTE SANDO, Pedro  y  DEL TORO PRADA, José Javier. Orientation referents to promote the social relevance of specialized training for the school principal. Rev. Mendive [online]. 2020, vol.18, n.3, pp.573-587.  Epub 02-Sep-2020. ISSN 1815-7696.

ABSTRACT The social relevance of the training of school principals, as a specialized process, is associated with the quality of the information used for its planning, which is currently insufficient. The objective of the research was to establish which orientation referents should be used to provide relevant, sufficient and timely information in the definition of the objectives and content of this training process, in order to ensure that it is socially relevant. Its scope was based on a methodological strategy that started from the systematization of research experiences and other previous works, developed through the use of empirical (documentary review) and theoretical methods (analysis-synthesis, induction-deduction) and methodological procedures (content analysis and triangulation) of educational research, which made it possible to identify which orientation referents are more widely used and considered more important. Based on these results, a theoretical-methodological proposal was modeled Those That supports referents that, in the authors' review, should be considered in the design and implementation of specialized training for school principals, adjusted to the Cuban context; Although feasible to be taken into account, with the corresponding adjustments, in other scenarios. In this regard, the proposal recognizes as the most important: a) the content of national educational policies; b) the particularities of the context of educational institutions; c) the content of the principals' professional management activity; d) the diagnosis of the educational needs and potential of the directors and; e) the modeling of qualities for an ideal performance of school principals
