Update - Gender and Age of CaSPA Principals

In recent times we have received additional data from CaSPA Principals around the country that has allowed us to update key indicators for the CaSPA Data Project.

We now have data on over 75% of our Principals regarding their year of birth and details of their appointment. Unsurprisingly, this has not resulted in significant changes in the information published earlier.  Rather it confirms the differing profiles of our "average" Female and Male Catholic Secondary Principals:

  • There are just on 2 Male principals for every 1 Female Principal
  • Female Principals tend to be first appointed at a later age than their male counterparts - by 2.5 years:
    • Female average first appointment 48.3 years of age
    • Male average first appointment 45.8 years of age
  • The length of current service also shows a discrepancy - though not as marked as the first appointment data
    • Average length of total service as a Principal for Females: 7.5 years
    • Average length of total service as a Principal for Males: 8.0 years
  • Interestingly though when we look at how long Principals have been in their current contract, we find that it is identical for both Females and Males: 4.1 years
