  • Do you have experience of observing lessons and providing feedback to help the development of others?

The successful candidate will partner with leaders and teaching colleagues at secondary level, working in line with their school improvement plans to highlight and implement strategies that have a positive impact on pupil outcomes right through to KS5. 

Joining our Trust will give you:

  • Accelerated and supported career progression;
  • A role that bridges the gap between strategy and practice;
  • Central Team Support to guide School Improvement;
  • An established group of professionals that are engaged in our commitment to develop others;
  • Excellent salary packages, with opportunity for progression;
  • Up to 45p per mile to cover the cost of travelling between sites, alongside other attractive benefits;
  • A rewarding and fulfilling working environment.

If you have high aspirations for your own career development, this opportunity is not to be missed. Applications to join us in September 2017 may also be considered. 

This is a superb opportunity to develop and progress professionally and to impact upon children’s learning.
