At Emmanuel Schools Foundation we value, challenge and inspire students and staff because each is infinitely precious, gifted for a purpose and morally responsible. 

We transform schools by valuing excellence of character, providing a challenging curriculum and inspiring service to our communities. We serve economically and socially disadvantaged contexts in the North East and Yorkshire; currently through six schools in Blyth, Gateshead, Sunderland, Middlesbrough and Doncaster educating over 7,000 students with a team of around 1,000 staff.

We have a challenging school improvement agenda and are seeking a talented professional to join our School Improvement Team.

Reporting to the Executive Team, and working with other senior leaders, the Director of Teaching & Learning will provide inspiring leadership in pedagogy and ensure that students have an exceptional and consistent teaching and learning experience, while having access to an outstanding quality of education; enabling ESF schools to act as a catalyst for social change, improving outcomes for students and the wider community.

This is a fantastic opportunity to join an ethos driven educational organisation whose vision, ethos and policies are characterised by high expectations and a community in which all are, and feel, valued.  

Benefits include Teachers’ pension scheme and lunch allowance when school based.

Location is flexible within the Trust, with travel to other locations as required.
