About our podcast series

Operam Education Leadership Recruitment recognises the challenges that education leaders face and the isolated nature of the role. So many potential leaders may also be unsure of what path to take and whether to take the leap into headship. This can be even more of the case if considering leading an international school. So, we have initiated an original podcast series where we interview current leaders from a variety of backgrounds in education about their journey, challenges, and thoughts on current issues.
