Effective leadership and management of teaching and learning is a critical role for the school principal. All other leadership and management roles and functions of the school must serve and support this primary purpose. The module will equip the student with the necessary competencies to lead quality teaching, manage curriculum implementation effectively and track and support improved learning. The student will develop a portfolio of evidence that will run throughout and across the programme and that will provide a tool for their professional reflection and development throughout their careers. The professional portfolio integrates the work across the programme and includes a practical workplace project. The portfolio will begin by asking students to reflect on the meaning of being a leader of a South African school.

Central to the portfolio will be a workplace project that will provide evidence, in an integrated way, of a candidate’s ability to undertake an evidence-based inquiry, make appropriate use of data and ICT and make evidence-based decisions. The project will also require that candidates implement changed practices as a result of these decisions, evaluate the impact thereof and make changes or amendments as indicated by the findings through an action-research cycle.
