Careers rarely develop the way we plan them. Our career path often takes many twists and turns, with particular events, choices and people influencing our direction.

Need to have a belief about the value of the sort of education provided by the school to which you are applying.
Need to be able to cope with ambivalence - being leader in the school is not a black and white thing.
Need to believe in people, whether it is staff or students.
