Jo Owen visits Emma Penzer, an experienced deputy head at Woodberry Down Community Primary School in Hackney, to find out if she has what it takes to become a headteacher.
Emma is already working to capacity. Concerned about her work/life balance she is wary of taking on the added workload and responsibility that headship would bring.
For inspiration, Jo sends Emma to spend a day with a charismatic leader. Award-winning architect Angela Brady has been running her successful business for 20 years whilst balancing the demands of children and home life.
Will a day spent with Angela prompt Emma to reconsider her journey to headship? To find out, Emma 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.
