(4)Such a council shall not before the end of the initial period make an appointment to which this subsection applies except after consultation with the Secretary of State.

(a)to be the chief education officer of the council; or

(b)to any designated post forming part of the management structure of the council for the time being approved under this section.

(6)In subsection (5)(b) above “designated” means designated for the purposes of subsection (4) above by a direction given by the Secretary of State.

(7)For the purposes of the consultation required by subsection (4) above a council proposing to make an appointment to which that subsection applies shall send to the Secretary of State particulars showing the name, previous experience and qualifications of the persons from whom the council proposes to make a selection.
