If you’re thinking about moving into a leadership role at one of British Columbia’s public schools, there’s no better time to look than now. Currently, BC school districts across the province are recruiting for over 20 principal and vice principal vacancies at various elementary, middle, and secondary schools.
Many districts are recruiting principals and vice principals for their “principal pools” for roles that start in the fall school year. Districts create principal pools in anticipation of expected vacancies, so that no school is left without a leader.
If you’re already a Principal or Vice Principal, and you’re looking for a fresh start in another region of BC in a new school, there are plenty of opportunities to go around. There are opportunities in all seven regions of British Columbia including Metro Vancouver, Fraser Valley, Kootenay, Okanagan, Northern BC, Central BC, and the Sunshine Coast/Vancouver Island.
Principals are generally responsibility for the overall administration and operation of a school. They oversee the implementation of the district’s priorities, and educational programs. General requirements to work as a principal or vice principal in BC schools includes a BC teaching certificate from the BC Teacher Regulation Branch and a Master’s degree in education.
