This study examines the development of competency approaches for school management in the UK and raises issues to be considered if these approaches are to be used more widely. Using examples of current attempts in education to apply competency models for staff selection and professional development, it develops suggestions for the use of competency models in schools for the 1990s, including the setting up of a "lead body" to provide a proper framework for school manager development. The book also contains useful addresses for those who want to make a start and a short bibliography.
