How will you affect the future of special education?

Special Education is a field that has seen an incredible demand and growth for qualified educators. Yet, many educators feel overwhelmed and undertrained to handle the needs of students under their care. Whether this is due to funding, staffing shortages, or ineffective curriculum or policy, it’s safe to say more can be done. This is especially important as more schools become inclusive, requiring more training and expertise that may not always be available; yet are in high demand.

This opens up opportunities for people with the will and heart to make a positive contribution to step forward and take ownership.

One such role is performed by the school principal. The principal provides leadership, motivation, and morale to dedicated teachers and educators in order to give students the best possible environment to learn.

  • Principals are responsible for hiring, training, and providing education and instructions to their team of educators.
  • Principals lead the administrators in collaborating on the establishment of curriculum guidelines.
  • Principals ensure that curriculum is appropriate, properly standardised and adhered to, as well as ensuring improvements to the curriculum.

The school principal’s role is one of active leadership, not just to the teachers she is responsible for training and leading, but is also hugely influential to the curriculum, discipline, and culture of the school. It is a position on your career path that can make a huge difference to many people down the line.

This and other opportunities open up upon attaining the Master of Education (Special Education).
