dc.description.abstractThe aims of this study were to investigate the competency of deputy principals in managing change at schools, to develop a management programme to assist them in dealing with change at schools and to investigate the kind of support they eceived. It has become clear from the literature that change is challenging because it needs people to adopt and adapt to a new way of doing and managing issues at school. This research was particularly aimed at developing a management programme to assist deputy principals to be able to handle change when it arises. The aims of the research were to: • Present an overview of the importance and effect of change at schools : • investigate the leadership and management role of deputy principals while managing change; • investigate the perceptions of educators and deputy principals regarding change management at school; and • Develop a management program to assist deputy principals !n dealing with the change at school. A literature study was undertaken to analyse change and determine method3 to deal with change. A quantitative research method in the form of a questionnaire was used to determine the nature and the perception of educators and deputy principals regarding change. The uniqueness of this study could be seen to be found in the developmental program suggestions in Chapter 6 aimed at providing support to deputy principals dealing with change
