Careers rarely develop the way we plan them. Our career path often takes many twists and turns, with particular events, choices and people influencing our direction.
We asked Paul Meany from Department of Education and Skills to give some advice for people considering this job:
Need to have a belief about the value of the sort of education provided by the school to which you are applying.
Need to be able to cope with ambivalence - being leader in the school is not a black and white thing.
Need to believe in people, whether it is staff or students.
