Transitions of any kind are major challenges, however, the transition from teacher to vice-principal is more complex than most and requires a high level of planning. Of course, the planning must be informed and guided by what we know about transition – our experience, the research and theory. In the end, transitions have the potential to bring early success or to create conditions that delay, inhibit, or in extreme situations, prevent individuals from being successful. The key to success is having a plan.
- understand the associated research and theory
- explore the components of a transition plan
- apply the new knowledge to the creation of a plan.
