Abstract

With reference to a recent government proposal for the introduction of qualifications for headteachers in England and Wales, presents some initial findings of research into training and preparation for primary headship. Discusses evidence derived from questionnaire response data on headteachers′ views of the adequacy of preparation and support. Indicates that the headteachers sampled held generally negative perceptions about the adequacy and availability of provision in both areas.
