Detail

This report, with companion case study report, looks at the range and roles of non-qualified teacher status (non-QTS) staff in schools who are members of the senior leadership team. It examines the impact of these roles on wider leadership teams and school effectiveness and improvement, and looks at new career routes that are emerging for non-QTS staff in schools to move into leadership.

This is a fascinating insight for senior leaders looking at developing their own team, or for support staff looking for routes into leadership.
