POLICY ON THE SOUTH AFRICAN STANDARD FOR PRINCIPALS

The Department of Basic Education (DBE) has published the long-awaited policy document which articulates standards for principalship.  The “POLICY ON THE SOUTH AFRICAN STANDARD FOR PRINCIPALSHIP” is aimed at clarifying competencies expected of schools principals and also to promote their professional image.

As such, the policy document therefore outlines the framework that guides recruitment, performance management as well as training and development of principals. All these key processes must therefore be aligned to the standard set in the policy.
