Headteacher Recruitment Toolkit

In December 2017, the Department of Education published the non-statutory guidance “Recruiting a headteacher: A guide to the recruitment and selection of headteachers and other leadership roles".

This publication was produced jointly by the DfE and NGA, with support from the Association of School College Leaders (ASCL), the National Association of Head Teachers (NAHT), Freedom and Autonomy of Schools – National Association (FASNA), the Local Government Association (LGA) and a range of other stakeholders.

This Toolkit, which was developed in parallel, is being published by NGA and should be read alongside the DfE guidance.
