    ADMINISTRATORS

    This is the managerial category of teachers in public schools and colleges. For Secondary schools the administrators are: Principals, Deputy Principals and Senior Masters. Primary schools schools have Head Teachers, Deputy Head Teachers and Senior Teachers as Administrators. While, Tertiary institutions/ Teachers’ colleges have: Principals, Deputy Principals and Senior Lecturers in this category.

    NON- ADMINISTRATORS
