Teaching is a stressful profession, and it’s
particularly stressful if you are the person at the top of the
tree. The responsibilities of a Head Teacher in a modern, urban
school can make it one of the loneliest occupations. When your
staff and pupils look to you for leadership, where do you go for
support and encouragement?
Some schools think they may have found the answer in appointing two
heads rather than one. The UK’s National College for School
Leadership, established to find new solutions to the problems of
modern school headships, thinks this is an example of the sort of
flexible approach needed to help teachers cope with the demands of
the head teachers role in the 21st century.
