David Wants a Headship



Primary school deputy head David Young, who has been interviewed for two headships recently, asks for help from Teachers TV's life coach Gladeana McMahon.

He is not sure why his career hopes have been disappointed so far as he is good at his job, but he hopes that Gladeana can help to find out what is holding him back.

Gladeana sets up a mock interview with a panel of three experienced serving or former headteachers so she can observe him in action.

After a thorough debrief with the panel, she comes up with the plan to take David for acting lessons to build his confidence and teach him to be more authoritative.
