Vacancy Information

“Outstanding” schools such as Copthorne and Horton Grange Primary Schools work with a strong and successful partnership of schools to train and support new and experienced teachers and school leaders in Bradford, Leeds and beyond. This includes supporting the next generation of teachers during their initial teacher training (ITT) and arranging school improvement support between schools.

The successful candidate will be based at our training campus
at Holybrook Primary School, close to the Leeds/Bradford border, and will provide support to our Head of Teaching Schools and Head of Initial Teacher Education.

Would you like to join our successful, dedicated and supportive team of partner primary, special and secondary school leaders? Taking up post in February 2020, we are seeking to appoint a highly motivated colleague who can use their own initiative to help continue the development of our Teaching Schools and School Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) provision as sustainable and innovative high-quality providers of school-to-school support and teacher training.

The successful candidate will have the drive, skills and enthusiasm to support our schools and partners in developing outstanding provision for local schools.

We are looking for an individual who:

  • Has a very high standard of verbal and written communicative skills along with the ability to work under their own initiative with limited supervision, working to priorities set by the school leaders
  • Can provide an effective and efficient comprehensive administrative service as part of a highly responsive professional team with significant levels of accountability in the dynamic education and school improvement sectors
  • Can organise and facilitate interview and selection activities to secure suitable trainee teachers for our partnership of schools, including overseeing safeguarding checks
  • Can accurately populate and maintain central records on data management systems, including those of the Department of Education
  • Is able to undertake event management, including marketing events via social media, using online booking tools and front of house support
  • Can oversee the financial management of budgets relating to school-to-school support and training events
  • Can build and maintain positive relationships with school leaders within and beyond our partnership
  • Has a positive outlook

This role is likely to evolve and adapt. We are seeking a candidate that wishes to grow the role and expand beyond the administrative remit into further partnership projects. The pay of the role will be reviewed to reflect any additional responsibilities.

Where the successful candidate has experience of working in school improvement and/or initial teacher training sectors previously, there may be the opportunity to develop their role beyond the administrative duties outlined above. For example, they may have experience in supporting a partnership of schools to deliver initial teacher training. This should be referenced in their application and will be explored further at interview.
