PMET is currently directly supporting 20 schools per district in cycles of between 3 and 5 years. Through the leadership exchange seminar, PMET aims to enable provincial and district leadership officials to begin to encourage their district officials to share the strategies and best practices implemented in the 20 schools in each district with all of their other schools. After the seminar the PMET provincial staff, works closely with district officials to administer baseline diagnostic and needs assessments in order to identify their specific support needs. Then, together with the schools, a 3-year school support programme is developed and implemented to effect change as a model for the rest of the district to adopt and implement in all of its schools.
