👩‍🎓 Changing teacher users' roles

How to change a Teacher into HoD or Admin or the other way round.

Why do we need to do this?

Sometimes a Teacher needs to be made a HoD or Admin so that they have more admin rights, Other times, an Admin needs to be changed to a HoD, or a HoD to Teacher.

What comes before?

You cannot change your own role. This needs to be done by another member of staff.

  • To make changes to the status of a HoD or Teacher: you must be a HoD or an Admin.
  • To make changes to the status of an Admin: You must be an Admin (different from the one whose status needs changing).
How to change roles:


  1. Go to Admin>Users.
  2. Find the HoD or Teacher whose role you need to change.
  3. Click on the pencil icon next to their name.
  4. On the next page, click on 'Edit information'.
  5. In the box stating their role (School Admin/Head of Department/Regular Teacher), click on the down arrow and select their new role.
