What is a Career in School Headship?

I find a Career in School Headship very interesting. Unfortunately, it is very difficult to find information about What School Headship actually is.

I was Googling about a Career in School Headship and was lucky to find: https://www.lifepage.in/career/20170628-0001/Arts/Education Management/Career-in-School-Headship/english
