Description - Diary of A Deputy by Susan M. Tranter
This is a practical account of what the role of a Deputy Head entails, with suggestions on how it may be fulfilled successfully. The author guides the reader from the role of middle management through to that of school leadership, describing the process of getting a senior post in a school and what to do in those first few months. The text also sets out how to plan a career whilst a deputy head and how the National Professional Qualification for Headship (NPQH) qualification can be incorporated into this planning. The job is complex because it involves managing and leading different groups of people - students, teachers, parents and governors. Chapters deal with issues such as: acquiring the necessary skills and experience; making an application and preparing for the interview; starting out as a Deputy; recruiting staff; continuing professional development; working with school governors; and preparing for headship.
