Principal’s Qualifications

If you are an AQ provider, please use the provider SharePoint site for the latest guidelines.

Members earn principal qualifications by taking the Principal's Qualifications, Parts I and II. The program is designed to educate future principals to lead and manage efficiently in contexts characterized by change and complexity.

Part I is an introductory program that includes coursework and the development of a practicum proposal. It is intended for any teacher interested in becoming a school principal and serves as an introduction to the fundamental aspects of leading and managing a school.

Part II candidates explore, in more depth, the theoretical and operational aspects of the principalship. Concepts and issues such as leadership and program planning are the focus of Part II.

The Principal's Qualifications program is open to teachers with five years teaching experience, qualifications in three divisions including Intermediate and a master's degree or two specialists or one specialist and half a master's degree.
