Regional Lead Practitioner for English - Ormiston Academies Trust (Northern Region)

Regular travel between academies is a necessity of the post. 

Ormiston Academies Trust (OAT) is a not-for-profit sponsor of 37 primary and secondary academies. Our vision is for all young people to have access to the highest academic, social and practical skills required to achieve their full potential, whether going on to study at a leading university or entering the world of work. We are determined to become the Trust that makes the biggest difference, both inside and outside the classroom. 

Our successful family of schools educates over 27,000 students across many areas of the country. We are continuing to improve outcomes for our students despite being largely in areas of historic academic underachievement

We are looking to recruit an outstanding teacher, to work as a Regional Lead Practitioner for English in some of our highest priority schools across the south coast.

The support you offer our leaders and teachers will be vital in ensuring that all of our schools achieve the same successes. Joining a regional school improvement team led by a Regional Director, you will use your passion, subject knowledge and expertise in English to drive forward the quality of teaching and learning. Supporting several schools, you will model great practice through a partial teaching timetable but you will also travel around the region to coach and lead others. This in an exciting role that requires flexibility, a team spirit, and a willingness to learn and it will suit individuals who want to take a step-up and work at a more strategic level in English, across a range of schools. 

Our expectations are high. We are aiming to ensure that all our schools show strong progress in English so that students can progress onto further study, university or employment of their choice. 

The successful candidate will: 

§ be an outstanding teacher with a proven track record of securing sustained excellent outcomes

§ have up-to-date knowledge of subject curricula and assessment requirements

§ be proficient in teaching English, preferably to GCE

§ have proven experience of identifying and implementing effective strategies for improving attainment in English in challenging schools at KS3 and KS4

§ be able to demonstrate resilience, motivation and commitment to driving up standards of achievement 

§ be able to work across a group of schools and show significant impact in developing capacity and improving outcomes for young people
