Is your department a vibrant and intriguingly challenging place to be - both for students and staff? Are you looking to become a Head of Department, or are you already one?
In this book we consider and provide clear guidance on all aspects of running and developing a department, from the role itself and its responsibilities, to strategic planning and staff management - where particular emphasis is offered to staff evaluation as developed by CIRCLE around our five school improvement domains.
The Head of Department Book is divided into easy to use cross referenced sections that can either be referred to independently as the need arises or as a whole. The Head of Department Book can be read as a standalone title or as a companion piece to other titles within CIRCLE's Leadership, Financial or Community Series where topics such as evaluation, pastoral care, or risk assessment are explored more extensively.
