The Eastern Cape Department of Education has published an open post bulletin Volume 5 of 2021/2022 which contains advertisements for School Principals’ Posts across all Eastern Cape Districts respectively.
As EDUPSTAIRS, we advise all School Principal applicants to familiarize themselves with the NEW PUBLIC SCHOOL PRINCIPALS’ HANDBOOK.
The handbook provides guidance on three important areas:
- Academic Leadership,
- School Leadership and

This handbook is NOT a policy document but it is a practical guide that is designed as a reference for Public School Principals to consult as they carry out their day to day roles and responsibilities. It will support Public School Principals to lead an effective school with the primary aim of improving teaching and learning in their schools.
