Modules for first-time principals

These online modules provide easily accessed learning opportunities for first-time principals, but have relevance for all principals.   

They support the professional learning and work of new principals by increasing their influence as educational leaders in their schools. 

They were developed for use in the First-time Principals Programme (FTP). This programme ran from 2002 - 2016.
