A proposal to appoint non-teaching staff as heads is evaluated PriceWaterhouseCoopers has recently published a report for the DCSF suggesting that the state sector should consider allowing people without teaching qualifications to take up headships. According to the report, this would address a lack of applicants for headteacher posts and a perceived lack of management experience in schools.

This programme will investigate the controversial proposals made by the report and see whether appointing ‘chief executives’ with no teaching background to turn round failing schools is a good idea.
