Northampton Academy is part of United Learning, a large and growing group of schools aiming to offer a life changing education to children and young people across England. Schools within United Learning work as a team and achieve more by sharing than any single school could. Our intranet site, United Hub, is just one example of how we share resources and communicate across sites, helping to simplify work processes and manage workloads for an improved work-life balance. We reward our staff: with good career opportunities, better pay, benefits, and ultimately the satisfaction of supporting schools in their quest to give every child the opportunity to succeed and reach their full potential.

Northampton Academy requires an enthusiastic, committed and outstanding Learning Manager to join our supportive team.

The Learning Manager provides a complementary service to the Directors of KS3 and KS4 addressing the needs of pupils, supporting them in achieving their full potential and enabling the Academy to further raise standards of achievement and behaviour across the key stages. The post-holder will manage and develop their Year Group (and individual/groups of pupils within it) academically and pastorally, taking responsibility for the attitudes to learning, behaviour, attendance, punctuality, uniform, pupil development, welfare and contribution to the Academy of each student.

This is a rewarding, yet demanding role and the successful candidate will work closely with students, staff and parents in order to support our high expectations.

You should have an encouraging manner with the ability to remain calm in difficult situations, you will be resilient and demonstrate energy and drive. Furthermore, the successful candidate will have excellent verbal communication skills and an awareness of the importance of inclusion for children.

Whether you have experience of a similar role, or are a recent graduate considering working in an education or care setting, or you are looking for a rewarding career change, this could be the ideal post for you. Join the team and you will work alongside professionals from a mix of backgrounds.

You will be given roles that let your play to your strengths and you will get the support you need to flourish professionally.

Due to the nature of the role, it is likely some flexibility will be required during certain times of the academic year e.g. parents/open evenings.
