Abstract

"Leadership development of practitioners in senior management positions in children’s services has been identified as a policy priority by the UK government, and new leadership development programmes for current and aspiring directors of children’s services in England are being launched. In order to inform the development of these programmes, the National College for Leadership of Schools and Children’s Services (the National College) commissioned a literature review to identify how senior leadership roles in children’s services are configured and supported internationally and to assess the approach taken to reforming services in a selected number of countries, covering services across education, social services, health, child protection and wellbeing. Additionally, information was sought on the approaches to supporting leadership development for children’s services leaders (however configured) in each of the selected countries. The countries included in the review, which were selected on the basis of criteria designed to allow valid and relevant comparisons, were Denmark, The Netherlands, Ireland, Canada and Scotland, with additional information on some aspects of the review being obtained for Australia, New Zealand and the USA." - Page 4.
