Creative Education Trust is a leading national multi-academy trust. Its work is focussed on improving standards of education and life chances for young people in challenged communities in the Midlands and on the East Coast. 

Our unique Knowledge Connected programme, which is woven through the curriculum, aims to prepare young people creatively for the challenges of the 21st century, while our rich cross-trust co-curricular programmes are designed to build cultural capital and foster self-confidence. 

This is an exciting time to join Creative Education Trust. Operating for almost a decade, we have been very successful in transforming schools with significant and deeply entrenched problems. The standard of education and the life-chances of our pupils have been greatly improved by the work done by our talented education team and experienced school leaders. 

Our success has created new and interesting challenges for us going forward. We expect our schools to reach the next level of performance and to succeed on behalf of our students in the world of the new Ofsted framework. Our exemplary work on curriculum innovation and the building of cultural capital give us strengths that will enable us to flourish in this new world. 

This is an opportunity for an exceptional education professional to help our Director of Education shape the next phase of the strategic development of Creative Education Trust and ensure that the culture of safeguarding permeates the organisation.  

Developing our Safeguarding and Governance systems to ensure compliance at all levels, this role will be monitoring the quality of safeguarding and governance across all phases, working collaboratively with senior colleagues and the Board to ensure that Creative Education Trust flourishes in a sustainable way.
