The Ministry of Education, through the National College for Educational Leadership (NCEL), is accepting applications for the second cohort of its Aspiring Principals’ Programme, which is scheduled to begin in March.

Interested persons are being asked to complete and submit the application forms, along with the relevant supporting documents, which are available on the Ministry’s website at moey.gov.jm. Applications close on January 16, 2015.

The nine-month modular Aspiring Principals’ Programme aims to identify and prepare future school leaders.  It will be delivered through the University of the West Indies at both its Mona and Western Jamaica campuses, on a part time basis, by way of face-to-face instruction, distance learning, coaching and mentorship.  Participants will be able to attend classes on Saturdays or Sundays.

The programme will provide a standard credential, the Professional Qualification for Principalship (PQP), to which the Ministry of Education and school boards will refer, before authorising the hiring of principals of public schools.

Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Grace McLean, said the Ministry is seeking the cooperation of regional directors, board chairmen of school and principals, in identifying and recommending potential leaders to the programme.

The NCEL is responsible for developing excellence in leadership as a common dominator in the country’s schools and supporting institutions.

For further information, please contact the NCEL at ncel@moey.gov.jm or call 612-5821.
