The Trust are celebrating significant improvements in results for 2018, particularly in Maths.

An important part of the Trust’s strategy for school improvement is to increasingly grow the capacity for specialist subject practitioners. Due to the promotion of the recent post holder, we are now looking to recruit senior specialist in Maths to lead a team of Maths Directors.

You will line manage the team of Directors of Maths setting high standards and being jointly accountable for outcomes. In addition, you will work with Curriculum Leaders and teachers across the Trust and assist in accelerating the pace of improvement.

Although you will be based in an academy, providing you with an opportunity to be part of a leadership team, regular travel across the northern region will be necessary in supporting curriculum leadership and teacher development throughout the Trust.

In return, we can offer you

- A family of Academies within the Trust and a set of values we all share

- Support for your professional development and the opportunity to continue to develop your leadership skills in a well-resourced academy environment
