In this programme, our panel of governors debate the best means of recruiting a new head, as they wrestle with the hypothetical but realistic scenario posed by a series of reconstructions.
Their discussion ranges from the possibility of promoting the deputy to the need for an overhaul of the school's staff development procedures, and the idea of marketing the school in a favourable light to encourage interest. It's a thorough examination of the different kind of challenges faced by governors when making an appointment which will have such a long-term impact on a school.
Governor expert Paul McGann, who has many years of experience at LEA level, assesses their responses to the scenarios and passes on helpful advice and guidance.
