Vice Principal Office

When it comes to all things academic, the buck stops with the vice principal. The holder of this office is required to strategically lead and manage academic affairs. He or she is responsible to the principal, and must first and foremost implement academic plans, policies and strategies. In this vein, the vice principal must ensure the review of academic programmes and adherence to academic standards. 

The vice principal chairs various academic committees, monitoring and ensuring the effective, efficient and economic utilization of academic resources. Every semester, the office of the vice principal works with heads of departments and the assistant registrar for academics to ensure the preparation and proper administration of final exams. This is no mean task, considering the plethora and diversity of academic programmes at the Polytechnic. 

It is also one of the responsibilities of the vice principal to act as a financial gatekeeper. In this respect, he or she works in conjunction with other office holders in the management team to protect the financial resources of the Polytechnic. Thus, the holder of the office of vice principal must be of upstanding character and have integrity.
