The support we received from Gordon towards the appointment of a new Headteacher at the school has been invaluable. Gordon set out a very clear plan, with timeline, for the Governors on how the process should be conducted and was available to advise on every step of the journey. Gordon was able to support at short notice with related issues where his advice and experience enabled the Governing Body to reach a successful outcome. The service that Gordon offered allowed the process to run smoothly, taking out any stress for Governors in the lead up to the interview day. The process that had been outlined had been fully discussed with us and agreed before Gordon went away to work out the detail, logistics and practicalities so that Governors could just arrive on the day and immerse themselves in achieving the objective at hand. The process was robust, fair and appropriately challenging for the post that it applied to. We have greater confidence in our work for having used Education Leadership as the consultants and particularly Gordon, for his unwavering commitment and attention to detail throughout the process.
