Training Courses

Recruiting a Headteacher is arguably the most important task a governing body will undertake. To complement our Prepare, Recruit, Appoint leadership recruitment service Governors can have access to a dedicated Headship recruitment webinar series. 

The focus of the sessions is to inform and prepare governors for the various stages of headship recruitment from what it means to be on a recruitment panel and an exploration of the role and responsibilities; through to an outline of Headteacher pay. There are sessions focussed on the key recruitment activities including shortlisting and reflecting on what makes a strong application.

Sessions will also cover interviewing and assessment skills - How to, write productive interview questions, probe and delve deeper in an interview, score fairly and assess candidates on the day. Focus is also given to the importance and value of induction and how new Heads might be best supported.
