School inspector

Stop using ‘standard officer’ title, advises Kombra

The Secretary for Education, Dr Uke Kombra is issuing the advice according to the Secretary’s Instruction No. 12 of 2016.

“The title ‘school inspector’ was used in the past until it was changed to ‘standard officer’ when the Standards Division of the Department, formerly known as Inspections and Guidance Division, was going through an inspection review process in 2016,” Dr Kombra said in a statement.

“This review saw a shift in inspectors’ work from teacher appraisal to whole school improvement and accountability.”
