At Westfield Community Technology College, chair of governors Chris Miller and vice-chair Paul Rosen were dismayed when they found out - on the eve of the summer holidays - that the headteacher was taking early retirement.

At Sayes Court Junior School in Surrey, chair of governors Doris Neville-Davies describes how circumstances meant that governors were initially unable to appoint a substantive head.

Find out how governors at both schools are now identifying and nurturing leadership potential in senior and middle management, enabling them to be more prepared for leadership change in the future.
