And quite right too; although I did things a bit back-to-front, securing a Headship before completing NPQH, there is no doubt that the final assessment interview would be a good preparation for anyone going on to Headship interviews after completing the course. In terms of the course we had a really good retention rate — no drop outs that I know of. I have attained from friends successful applications and have been amazed to find that the content in my own application is clearly much stronger. But they are time-consuming to fill in! Thank you for this informative post. Sorry, your blog cannot share posts by email.
If anyone is willing to share, I would be really grateful. Simple answer — yes. Its great the get this kind of feedback. Would anyone out there be kind enough to share their successful application form so that i can see the type of layout and level of detail needed?

Yes, statemet password is: I am looking to apply in this round, and would really appreciate looking at some sample application forms. Enjoyed reading this — as an assessor and online facilitator it is always interesting to read reflections from those who have gained the qualification.

This is really, really tough. Finally, if the projects pass, there is a face-to-face assessment.
You are commenting using your Facebook account. You are a success story of NPQH. UCAS are using plagiarism software to spot similarities between personal statements in undergraduate applications. Hard work ahead but good to hear there are many benefits!
Your name or email address: There is not much guidance on the 3 reasons for knowing that one is ready for headship and though I can think of several and back them up with evidence, I would like pegsonal exemplars so that I format my answers appropriately.
All the very best and good luck with your application.

Congratulations I agree it is all hard work! For those interested in Headship! No, create an account now.
I have been successful with the application and assessment day and am due to ststement the course in September. Its great the get this kind of feedback. The web-crawlers will find it and sell it. Thank you for this informative blog.
Shame on you – you do not deserve the job. A headteacher needs to command respect and I would have no respect for any of the people on an open forum requesting copies of other people’s applications. Terry is monitoring this site.
