There are 809 clustered and non-clustered schools (“schools” from now on) in Portugal. Each of them has a headteacher, elected by the Government Body of each school for a four-year term.
Our members are headteachers from 174 of these schools. They can serve a maximum of four terms in each school.
This number in our Association might increase as about 30% of our headteachers have just begun their first term.
ANDAEP (National Association of Portuguese Public Schools and School Clusters’ Headteachers) was founded in 2009. Our statutes establish that Andaep’s purpose is to act, on behalf of its members, in order to ensure:
We have been active in the Portuguese educational environment and we have been regularly consulted and our opinions are frequently taken into account by the political decision makers. Our presence in the national media (TV, radio; newspapers) has been regular and prominent.
