Cape NGO coaches principals to bring change to local schools

A local NGO is playing its part in combating the education crisis facing underprivileged schools.

The Principals Academy has developed a coaching programme to help school principals effect change in the classrooms.

The programme is run by retired school principals who jointly have over 120 years of experience in education.

The 92 participating principals attend a year-long management development course at UCT's Graduate School of Business.

The principals also get mentored by a retired principal over the course of three years, and work with trained subject specialist to improve the teaching of the curriculum in schools.
