    Dear all,
    I am about to take up my first Headship (Primary) and would like to ask which courses you feel are useful and/or essential? Safer recruiting? CP Level 3 or higher?

    Thanks in advance,

    Why yes, since CP&S are priorities, if you do not have recent training and experience, these are important. But presumably you are already a DHT so do have recent training and experience in these?

    I would also suggest that you ask your Head what they would recommend - they will know better than anyone if there are any lacunae that you would do well to fill.

    There are these threads on general advice for newbies:
