3.3.3 Deployment to initial postings

Deployment of newly qualified teachers to initial postings should be part of an integrated deployment system, and based on the principles of equity and transparency. Such deployment should also ensure that:

  • Newly trained teachers are deployed to schools where they can benefit from support and mentoring from more experienced colleagues
  • Teachers are not deployed to postings where they may be vulnerable, due to their gender, ethnicity or other factors
  • Teachers with disabilities are deployed to postings where the infrastructure allows them to carry out their professional role and access the necessary support and facilities, including medical facilities
  • Teachers with medical conditions, including HIV and AIDS, are deployed to postings with appropriate support and medical facilities.
