Succession planning for teachers and others working in the education system is underway.
Chief Officer of Education Christen Suckoo said the plan will present the opportunity for upward mobility to positions other than the classroom for teachers.
It will also allow long-term teachers the chance to remain in the classroom if that is what they want.
“I spoke and the minister spoke about succession planning in the ministry to give people the opportunity to ascend to different positions other than just classroom positions if that is their choice, we also want to focus on keeping teachers happy so that if it is their choice to remain in the classroom for their entire career they can do so,” Mr. Suckoo said.
The Chief Officer said succession will always work in the Ministry’s favour as historically people are not pushed out of Positions and he said the plan is really about replacing workers in a timely fashion when teachers retire from the classrooms.
