This programme looks how teachers can move up in the career ladder, be it through management or in the classroom.
Ian Goddard is a young deputy headteacher who is being groomed for headship. He talks about how he got to where he is, whilst his long-time mentor discusses what it takes to become a headteacher.
In the studio we look at the best path to becoming a head; is it good to get there as quickly as possible, or should you settle in for the long haul? And what do you do if you haven't got a mentor?
If management isn't for you, there is a look at the new chartered teacher status and how it is bringing more prestige to teaching for those who want to stay in the classroom.
