Academies: Head Teachers

Volume 475: debated on Monday 28 April 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families pursuant to the answer of 14 January 2008, Official Report, column 823W, on academies: head teachers, for what reasons the National Professional Qualification for Headship will be compulsory in all maintained schools other than academies; and if he will make a statement. (201404)

We are considering the process for ensuring that all academies benefit from the best possible opportunities for enhanced leadership training appropriate to their circumstances, including the National Professional Qualification for Headship. I will write to the hon. Member with further details once that consideration is complete.
