The JMB recognises the need to train and support new appointees to the post of Principal and Deputy Principal through providing a training programme incorporating two phases in their first year of appointment. Principals and Deputy Principals find this programme of great benefit to them in facing the tasks that lie ahead.

Participants are provided with practical advice as well as the chance to exchange views and network with colleagues.
