How do senior leaders get their jobs? | Teacher Network Blog | Guardian Professional

The reason I write this post is to share my experiences with other colleagues. It is certainly not an exemplary model of any leadership interview, just my story. In the short amount of time I have been working in school leadership, the application and interview process still remains an unknown quantity for many of us. At each of the stages we climb higher, we relish the challenge but would also acknowledge that, for the vast majority, we are stepping into the unknown.

In the past few years, I have experienced a total of four leadership interviews. Three of these have been for assistant headteacher positions and the other, a deputy headteacher role. This blog goes into detail about three of the interviews.

I would describe myself as a vocational practitioner, someone who prefers coursework, rather than an examination. Of course I can do both but, given a preference, I wish there were interview processes that existed, to support teachers like myself who could prove their worth over a performance period.
