Recruiting a headteacher: a practical guide for governors gives those involved in this most important of governor duties the know-how and confidence to complete it successfully.

The CPD accredited course breaks down the process of headteacher recruitment into five key phases, including tips and ideas for individual tasks.

It includes advice and guidance from governance professionals in Essex County Council and the London Borough of Islington, as well as conversations with nine governors in a range of settings, each of whom has recently undertaken successful recruitment rounds for new headteachers.

To support the recruitment process, we’ve also included several links to relevant resources and guidance, some of which have been specially developed to accompany the module.

After accessing all parts of the course you’ll receive a certificate confirming your completion.
