An exciting opportunity has arisen to join our new team of internal subject/aspect consultants for Co-op Academies Trust. We are looking for an outstanding practitioner within primary who has a proven track record of securing improvements in pupils’ outcomes across the wider curriculum. This is a crucial role within our School Improvement Strategy and we will continue to expand this team over time.

You will do this by working alongside leaders and teachers that work in our Co-op Academies.
