Head of Learning and Achievement plays a key role in realising the ambitions of the Education and Skills Strategy so that all children and young people in Buckinghamshire reach their full potential.

Head of Pupil Placed Planning and Organisation will respond creatively and swiftly to the challenges of a changing educational landscape and ensuring sufficient high quality education places are available for all children and young people across Buckinghamshire.
