It is increasingly being acknowledged that subject leaders hold the key to school improvement and professional development. However, there is little information available for subject leaders to help them with the day-to-day practicalities of running a department on top of existing teaching commitments. This uniquely practical book deals specifically with current issues faced by subject heads of department (HoDs). Engagingly and entertainingly written, this book covers the major areas of concern to subject leaders, including leadership styles, managing staff, managing pupil performance, strategic planning, curriculum development and coping with problems.
