Draft regulations specifying the education and training standards needed before appointment to Head Teacher posts

Executive Summary

The draft regulations specify the education and training standards needed before teachers can be appointed to Head Teacher posts in education authority and grant-aided schools. The regulations provide that only those persons who have achieved the Standard for Headship may be appointed as Head Teacher. However, the regulations are practicable and allow for a degree of flexibility.
