JMB Interview Competencies Model Training 2019


Training programme

5.00pm to 7.00pm on day one and 9.30 am to 4.30pm on day two.


A review of the JMB framework of competencies for Principal and for Deputy Principals was commenced in November 2018 in the light of feedback from members of selection committees, Principals, Chairpersons of Boards of Management and Trustees representatives.

During this review it was decided to redefine four of the six competencies to include more explicitly the four domains identified in the Department of Education and Skills document, Looking at Our School 2016: A Quality Framework for Post-Primary Schools. This document identified, within the dimension Leadership and Management, four domains which would be relevant in the recruitment of Principals and Deputy Principals.
