News flash from the diary's favourite education action zone in Halifax, Calderdale. The story so far: Calderdale chief adviser Peter Bartle is invited to join the appointment panel for zone director; Mr Bartle decides he wants the job himself.

(He explains he has to "keep his hand in" because the director's job is a only fixed-term contract). So a consultant is appointed to help with the zone's onerous workload. The lucky contractor? Er, a Mr Peter Bartle.
