Jo Owen visits Philomena Cozens, an experienced deputy headteacher from St Clere's School in Essex, to find out if she has what it takes to become a headteacher.
Philomena is capable and committed to her school, but is undecided whether to remain in her role as deputy or to apply for headship posts at other schools.
For inspiration, Jo sends Philomena to spend a day with an inspirational leader. Sarah Weir, executive director of Arts Council England, is a visionary whose motivation is evident in everything she does.
Will a day spent with Sarah prompt Philomena to reconsider her journey to headship? To find out, she sits before a carefully selected panel of education experts chosen from governing bodies, industry recruitment and outstanding schools.
After cross-examination, the panel will decide if she has the skill as well as the will to make it.
