Emmanuel Schools Foundation (ESF) exists to enable children and young people to reach their God-given potential. We place a premium on the building of character, which is inseparable from academic excellence and high aspiration, and teach our students to think - intensively and creatively. Our schools’ core values of honourable purpose, humility, compassion, integrity, accountability, courage and determination are inspired by the life and ministry of Christ Jesus.
We are passionate about social justice, and our schools are located in places of social disadvantage. Emmanuel College, Gateshead, Bede Academy, Blyth, The King’s Academy, Middlesbrough, and Trinity Academy, Doncaster, together educate over 5,500 students with a team of 870 staff. Our vision is to expand to provide more young people in disadvantaged areas with a rigorous, character-first, knowledge-based education.
We now have a significant opportunity for a Director of Teaching School to join us as we grow our Teaching School provision throughout the North East and Yorkshire, and attain SCITT status within two years. We are looking for a leader of character who can take us to the next level with our initial teacher training, continuing professional development, and school to school support provision. We believe in leadership by example, therefore you must be an outstanding teacher, with a track record of inspiring both students and staff to make rapid progress.
Reporting to the Executive Principal, you will have the autonomy to drive the growth and influence of the Emmanuel Teaching School, through close working relationships with the Board of Trustees and ESF Executive and Principals, and with the Headteachers of Alliance partner schools.
You will share our passion for excellence, and possess the vision and ability to scale up existing ITT, CPD and outreach programmes so that more young people can benefit from an education of ESF quality; your intellect and education will be first rate, and you will have a skill for networking.
This is an opportunity to join an educational organisation that is committed to excellence, passionate about education, and ready to grow.
Other benefits: Teachers Pension Scheme, free lunches, childcare vouchers, potential priority admission for children of staff into one of our schools.
