Use Tuthong for professional growth (Beginner level)

As a professional educator and school manager you will be looking out for opportunities to grow professionally by accessing content for school managers or contacting other school managers. The national education portal, Thutong, offers you the opportunity to grow like this.

I try to find people in other places who are leading successful schools, and to share ideas with them. If you can identify an idea from one school you visit, and add it to your own ideas, then you can grow your own mountain.
