'All South Africans must now unite and join hands and say we are one country, one nation, one people, marching together into the future.' - Nelson Mandela

This book is underpinned by the philosophy that effective management of all staff in schools is essential if the challenges of educating South Africa’s youth are to be met. Good managers are able to recruit, select, motivate and monitor teachers and other staff.

The purpose of the book is to provide guidelines for professional development and competence in managing staff effectively. Case examples are provided throughout to enable practical application to specific contexts.
