Following the success of the winter series of INTO’s Principals’ Webinars held in November and December 2020, the INTO ran a spring series of Principals’ Webinars.

Unfortunately, the 24 March Principals’ Webinar on ‘Staffing & Redeployment’ did not proceed as scheduled as the staffing circular had not yet been issued by the Department.
Following the release of the new staffing Circular 0019/2021, the INTO prepared an informational presentation on the staffing circular and the recording is now available to watch.
