Leadership and Management


Succession Planning and Talent Management

A large proportion of senior school leaders are approaching retirement age. Significant numbers of headteachers are retiring every year and this trend is expected to continue. Additionally about a quarter of assistant and deputy heads are aged 55 or over. The education profession now faces a major ‘succession planning’ challenge.

We believe that schools can play a vital role in identifying and developing leaders for the future. The Teaching School can support with further training, mentoring and CPD to prepare staff for career progression.
