Equivalent in terms of rank (maximum substantive grade).

Technically a LH is meant to take charge of certain levels within the subject (e.g. LH/Maths might be in charge of lower sec mathematics programme) while SH is meant to take charge of a subject area that HOD might not be subject content expert for (e.g. LH/Physics for a Chemistry-trained HOD/Science).

But sometimes schools will just appoint SH/EL, for instance, even though HOD/EL also teaches that subject. Have not really noticed any difference in function myself.
