Professional Development Programmes

School Level Monitoring and Support Services

According to EMSSD decentralized policy, the monitoring and support services systems have been entrusted to school to facilitate greater accountability, transparency and efficiency in our management systems from the year 2000 onwards.

Monitoring is basically checking on the teachers’ performance of a responsibility or duty to see if the work is being done the way it is expected. Monitoring also encompasses analyzing and identifying the factors that affect the performance of teachers, convincing the staff for the need to improve or acquire additional knowledge, skills and values and attitude, and ensure adequate support services to the staff by the management in order to meet the challenges demanded by the profession. It can lead to a continuous development in one’s profession and be sustainable in the school system.
