Guidance on recruiting a headteacher

19 December 2017

The DfE has published a guide to help governors and trustees make effective decisions when recruiting and selecting headteachers and other school leaders. The guide, written in partnership with the National Governance Association (NGA), highlights the importance of professional recruitment practice in recruiting and selecting headteachers. It identifies good practice, emphasises the need for fairness and transparency, and signposts to all related guidance.

The guide should be read alongside the recruitment toolkit.
