Education ministry moves to train more prospective principals
The Education Ministry has taken another step towards expanding the pool of persons trained as prospective principals.
The National College for Educational Leadership has published an advertisement inviting qualified educators to apply for entry to round two of the Aspiring Principals Programme offered through the University of the West Indies.
The move comes as part of the ministry's attempt to improve the quality of leadership in the country’s public schools.
The first batch of just over 40 educators drawn from public schools across the country recently completed the programme.
The Aspiring Principals Programme targets education professionals with strong leadership potential who are desirous of becoming school principals.
