Leadership of different kinds exists at many levels in the post-compulsory sector-from principles to programme leaders, administrative staff and even caretakers. Based on detailed case studies of current leaders in post-compulsory education, this book explores leadership theories, models and styles to provide inspiration and guidance for the next generation of educational leaders. The book is based on "voices of the leaders" captured in ten open-ended long interviews, using an intrinsic phenomenological approach, and including examples of further, adult, community and prison education. A range of leadership approaches are discussed in an open-ended exploration of the work of those who are academic leaders, spiritual leaders, charismatic leaders, women leaders, ethnic minority leaders, business, community and enterprise leaders. Presenting a wide and holistic view of leadership at different levels, this book is relevant for potential and current leaders in post-compulsory education. By encouraging readers to review and reflect on the models described, the book aims to inspire leaders of the future to develop their own leadership style and vision.
