This manual provides an overview of the design and expected delivery of the new programme. The key focus of the ACE (School Management and Leadership) programme is to facilitate real transformation in schools that is grounded in recognition of the challenges of particular contexts and the values underpinning the South African Constitution. Principals and would-be principals must understand that it is not acceptable simply to pay lip service to the ideas presented in the programme, to develop polices that are not implemented in practice or to adopt a minimal compliance stance. Instead, a deliberate attempt is made to encourage critical reflection on current practices, planning for improvement, action based on informed understandings and monitoring and evaluation that is critical and responsive.

In this article focus is on the role of ubuntu as one of the Constitutional values that can enhance school management. This study looked at whether or not ubuntu philosophy can assist school rid managerial obstacles. A case study was conducted in a school where the principal in it used ubuntu as a form of leadership model. Based on tested and mellowed values of African democracy, it was found out that the philosophy contains the ideal model on which democratic leaders would like their fellow employees to follow. This philosophy also responds to the local African context, hence it might be ideal for African schools in particular. However, we found out that ubuntu is not a plain sailing form of leadership. As any other models, teachers need to be prepared to be receptive to it. Ubuntu as a philosophy can also not be seen as a 'sixe fits all' solution in the challenges that the African society faces today.
