The school must have achieved significant improvement since the nominated principal’s appointment.

Nominator Qualifications

The nominator should have direct knowledge of the nominated principal’s work.

The nominator may not be a family member of the nominee.

Evaluation Criteria
Since the award is not a grant, nomination material should emphasise the principal’s accomplishments rather than future goals. Both historic and current performance should be addressed. The following are suggested criteria to consider in describing your Nominee’s work:

Contributions towards the development and improvement of the school

Record of achievement of the nominee

(Possible areas for inclusion: support to school management, educators, parents and community, attendance rate of educators and learners, fundraising initiatives and additional resources for the school, governance structures established, participation in extra curricular activities, improvement in the school functionality and improvement on learner pass rates)

Innovation in area of work

Organisational capacity and administrative efficiency

Demonstration of impact

Nomination Process

The Identification Sheet below must be completed, signed by the nominator, and returned. If the identification sheet is submitted via e-mail, a copy must also be sent via facsimile or mail as the signature of the nominator must be on file.

A personal Nominating Letter in English, not to exceed five typed pages, should cite the reasons the nominee deserves to be awarded the Incentive for Excellence Award. Any additional materials submitted will be retained by The Shuttleworth Foundation and will not be returned.

Multiple nominations are not encouraged, although more than one person can sign a nomination letter. If more than one nomination is received for a principal, the earliest will be the first nomination of record. Any other nominations will be registered as letters of support; however, no more than three letters of support will be recorded.

Once the nomination has been received, the Shuttleworth Foundation may require additional support material from the nominee. The Foundation will contact the nominee directly for this information.
