Training Needs of Headteachers in Uganda.
Pfau, Richard H.
This paper describes a survey conducted in Uganda during 1994 to determine the management training needs of primary school headteachers. A questionnaire, listing 155 tasks and duties performed by Ugandan headteachers, was administered to 47 headteachers in 3 districts of Uganda. Participants were asked to indicate the tasks they considered more important than others to be included in the management training program that was being developed. The tasks are grouped into 13 categories and the mean response for each task is given. The categories are: (1) general management; (2) personnel management; (3) staff development; (4) financial management; (5) records management; (6) materials and supplies; (7) communication; (8) meetings; (9) school governance; (10) curriculum management; (11) school facilities; (12) pupil-related tasks; and (13) other tasks. Using the results of the survey, the Uganda Ministry of Education developed a basic management training course for primary school head teachers. Two appendices provide: the Primary School Headteacher Training Needs Assessment Form and an overview of the Basic Management Training Course. (ND)
