Succession planning and the development of system leadership are ‘hot topics’ in education at the start of the 21st century. The widely held concern that we might be about to encounter a loss of ‘baby boomer’ headteachers leaving gaps that would prove difficult to fill has exercised the country’s educationalists for the past decade. At the same time the rapid development of system leadership – experienced headteachers undertaking significant outreach work and often supporting schools who are struggling to raise standards – has become a feature of the educational landscape. This report explores whether one might support the other, namely, whether development of system leadership might also encourage the development of tomorrow’s leaders.
