Realising your potential. Women’s leadership in controlled schools
A series of engagement events were carried out by the Controlled Schools’ Support Council (CSSC) in March 2017.
During these events, female participants outlined their concerns at the lack of support they received in terms of applying for leadership positions and also once they had progressed in their career. They articulated that they felt isolated with no or limited resources available to them for advice and encouragement.
In order to explore these issues and provide leadership support and guidance, the CSSC decided to hold an event to look at and discuss issues, challenges and solutions facing women in leadership positions in education.
The findings are outlined in this report ‘Realising your potential. Women’s leadership in controlled schools’.
