Career civil servants could head academies system

The DfE is planning changes to the system that oversees academies which could lead to career civil servants rather than former school leaders overseeing thousands of schools, Tes can reveal.

It is understood that the proposals could also see the offices of the eight regional schools commissioners (RSCs) beefed up and given a greater role in areas such as teacher recruitment.

The DfE said the reforms, which have yet to be publicly announced, amounted to “operational changes” rather than changes to policy.
