If you are in any doubt about the influence that the person leading a college has on its performance, look no further than a 2017 research paper by Jenifer Ruiz-Valenzuela, Camille Terrier and Clementine Van Effenterre (see references, page 53). The academics from the Centre for Vocational Education Research at the London School of Economics set out to quantify the importance of college principals.

Effectiveness of CEOs in the Public Sector: Evidence from Further Education Institutions, Jenifer Ruiz-Valenzuela, Camille Terrier and Clementine Van Effenterre. December 2017, Paper No CVERBRF005.
