Abstract

This article draws on research undertaken in Scotland as part of an International Study of Principal Preparation (ISPP). The study is designed to address the question 'How useful are principal preparation programmes to novice headteachers?' Drawing on the research data from Scotland, the authors examine how novice headteachers navigate the complex area of practice by integrating personal and professional knowledge over time. They also identify key questions for future study.
