Add ability to add a django permission to a User

I am creating a custom dashboard for a school admin and I would like to add the ability for them to add a specific Permission to a student they create via their dashboard. I can change the permission from the django admin but not sure the secure way to add this functionality to the frontend.

You enclose that functionality within a view (or views if more than one is necessary) that limits access to the individuals having permissions to make those changes.

In principle, it’s no different than restricting access to any other view by permission.
