This updated one-day programme will provide participants with a clear understanding of a competency based approach to the appointment of a Principal/Deputy Principal. It is a practical programme which aims to develop and enhance the interviewing and selection skills of participants to ensure future selection decisions rest in the appointment of the best possible candidate for the position.

ACCS strongly recommends that members of selection committees are trained in this approach.

Content includes:

  • Competency Based Interviewing
  • Shortlisting of candidates
  • The interview process
  • Questioning and listening skills
  • Evaluating the evidence
  • An overview of the Competency Based Recruitment and Selection Process Manual
  • Employment legislation relevant to the Recruitment and Selection Process

Who should attend?

Selection Committee Members/Principals/Chairpersons of BOM.

This CPD will be of particular interest to schools who may have a vacancy for a Principal or Deputy Principal in the near future.

Newly appointed Principals, who have not already attended Competency Interview Training, may also find this In-Service beneficial.

Participants should be nominated by a Board of Management in order to attend this training.
