Searched the internet extensively.
You are already one!! The act stipulates the following are Commissioners:
(a) Private school:
- Principal or Headmaster/Headmistress.
(b) School, training college, technical college and college of education established by or in terms of a law:
- Principal, Headmaster/Headmistress, Rector, Deputy Principal, Deputy Headmaster/Headmistress and Vice-Rector.
(c) Educational auxiliary services and professional components:
- Incumbent of a post at post level 4 and higher.
You can proceed to act as one and do not have to apply anywhere.
