Recruiting the right person to lead your trust

"The expert support that we received was invaluable in enabling us to recruit a great candidate. The guidance from the consultant and the robust process that they delivered with us gave us immense confidence." Chair of Trustees

The selection and appointment of a new CEO for a trust will have a long-term impact on the success of the organisation.

The recruitment and selection process is therefore one trustees will need to prepare for and plan carefully if they are to appoint the best person for the role. Appointing the right person is essential to the successful direction, leadership and management of the trust, and ultimately for improvement and pupil/student success.

ASCL Professional Development offers a comprehensive and cost-effective Leadership Appointment Service for CEOs, providing expert guidance and advice, and with a dedicated and experienced consultant working with trustees throughout the appointment process.

All our expert consultants are either serving or former CEOs or headteachers, providing an unparalleled level of support, expertise and experience when appointing to this important role.

We also provide a range of professional services to further support the appointment process, including testing candidates in common scenarios as part of the interview process, psychometric testing, and the opportunity for governors to access a comprehensive induction programme for their new headteacher during their first year in post.

In addition, ASCL can give greater exposure to your leadership vacancies by advertising them to all of our members. To find out more please call ASCL PD on 0116 299 1122 or email us.
