Managing unsatisfactory performance - heads of program, heads of school, assistant principals and deputy principals procedure

Version number 1.0 | Version effective 11 February 2013


All state schools 


Provides processes and procedures for the identification and management of unsatisfactory performance of State School Heads of Program and Deputy Principals.

This procedural policy provides a framework within which Heads of Program and Deputy Principals will have an opportunity to address concerns about unsatisfactory performance in such a way that:

  • recognises the key role of employees in student achievement and student outcomes
  • acknowledges their key role in putting Education Queensland’s values into practice and in realising the vision of Education Queensland and
  • ensures efficiency, equity, dignity and confidentiality in dealing with an employee’s unsatisfactory performance and acknowledges the potential for an ongoing contribution to quality classroom teaching only where teaching and learning practices in their classroom/s are not subject to the MUP process (i.e. unsatisfactory performance has been identified in the leadership/management functions of the employees role alone).
