This article examines a number of issues related to the question of 'next practice' in leadership development in Scotland. Educational policy in Scotland recognises the importance of leadership and has some well developed programmes of leadership development but these are by no means comprehensive nor will these be necessarily sufficient to meet the changing role of leaders in education. This article raises a number of questions in order to consider what 'next practice' might be in leadership development in Scotland. The article begins by placing the question of leadership in the wider policy context and then a number of issues relating to the leadership continuum, approaches to leadership development and the relationship between leadership and pupil learning are considered.
