dc.description.abstract This investigation focuses on the leadership role of the principal in managing and supporting curriculum change in South African schools. The results reveal that principals are required to initiate change and to lead the curriculum change process in schools. Principals are expected to monitor, manage and evaluate the implementation of OBE in their schools. They also need to provide ongoing support to colleagues and are further required to acquire and employ skills, qualities, characteristics and a management style that is suitable for the OBE leader. <BR><BR> This investigation recommends that for principals to manage and support curriculum change effectively in South African schools: (1) Principals are in need of more training and ongoing support; (2) Commitment and support to the outcomes based curriculum is called for; (3) Skills and qualities, for effective leadership, needs to be acquired and employed; and (4) A strategy to manage, monitor, support and evaluate curriculum implementation in the school is needed. en
