Reasons for Delocalization
The transfers and deployments, according to the Commission, are happening for a number of reasons, including:
- After principals and headteachers who have attained the obligatory retirement age retire, some headship positions become vacant. As a result, qualified deputy heads with a track record of excellent performance have been elevated to headship positions and transferred accordingly. Of course, some of the current leaders have been relocated to take up the vacant posts. In order to match performance and experience with enrollment and institutional level, this is necessary.
- In some educational institutions, the necessity to improve management as a result of recommendations from standards and assessment reports, has also led to changes.
- Upon the appointment of institutional administrators, some long-serving principals and headteachers in the same institution have been transferred. It is intended that the transfer will provide them with a new working environment and also tap into their vast experience.
- In the course of the year, some Heads of Institution apply to be transferred to new stations. Such applications are normally considered at the end of the year to avoid unnecessary disruption in curriculum delivery, and after necessary replacements have been made. In making the transfers, the Commission has always considered important factors such as number of years pending retirement as well as exceptional circumstances such as health, where appropriate documentation is available.
