1. Programme Objectives

• To rapidly upgrade the management skills of principals in selected

schools in KZN through a highly applied methodology

layers in the functioning of a school (Circuit Manager; Principal &

SMT)

• To improve the support and coaching skills of Circuit Managers and

other DoE officials (where applicable)

3. Quality Assurance - UKZN

Moderation of PoEs : 5 November 2012

Moderation Team : UKZN, Independent Principal & DoE Official

•All 16 portfolios were moderated.

•Moderation was criterion-referenced because principals come from very different contexts

•The portfolios were moderated individually and not on a comparative basis, however HoDs portfolio

from the same school were compared.

•Moderators were looking for authentic engagement with the tasks and the practicality of

implementation

•The inclusion of teams from the same schools were interesting. Largely the Portfolios of Evidence

submitted by Principals and HODs from the same school were nearly identical. This stands to reason if

the SMT engagement with the PMDP had been authentic.

•There is evidence which suggests that the SMTs engaged well with the Programme, thus the schools

should benefit from the process

4. Research Conclusions

• Research has shown that the package of practices in the PMDP has medium strength and a

statistically significant linear relationship with school performance

• Statistically the Top 7 Practices contribute to 7% of the variation in the results at both Primary &

Secondary Schools

• No statistically valid linear relationship exists between Infrastructure and the school results

(Secondary)

• From a policy perspective, if the intention is to achieve improved results then resourcing should

primarily focus on improving practices rather than infrastructure

10. The Next Steps

• Conduct follow-up visits to the schools to ensure management practices learnt are

sustained

• Specific issues or areas of development that have been raised either by participants or

JET will be dealt with during the next 2 follow up visits

• An MIS Cell Phone reporting system has been introduced recently and schools will be

supported in getting their reporting going in the next 2 months
