The JMB recognises the need to train and support new appointees to the post of Principal through providing a training programme incorporating two phases in their first year of appointment. 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.

Phase 1 of training will consist of a three-day programme in June before the new school year commences and Phase 2 will consist of a two-day programme in November.
