Career Structure Templates

Once a board has been notified by the Ministry that their principal is eligible for a career structure payment, these templates can be downloaded and used to evaluate whether a principal meets the professional criteria of the career structure payment.  They are also incorporated into NZSTA's performance agreement template to be used as part of the anual performance review process.

To find more information on this process visit our Career structure page.
