HC Deb 14 March 1978 vol 946 c131W
45. Mr. Sainsbury

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what advice she has issued to local authorities on appointments procedures for head teacher posts.

Mrs. Shirley Williams

Authorities have been requested, in the Government's Green Paper "Education in Schools" (Cmnd 6869) to consider whether their present arrangements are securing the best possible appointments of head teachers, and also whether they are doing enough by way of training to foster the qualities of leadership and management that headships require.
