We believe in potential as much as experience. You will be a great teacher – you don’t have to have done it for many years to be a strong fit for this role!

Led by our School Improvement Leader, you will use your passion, expertise and subject knowledge in English to drive forward the quality of teaching and learning across all of our Academies, working in secondary ages 11-19. Close liaison with primary colleagues through our co-design subject networks will be integral to the role, and you will be a key member of the English co-design subject team. Regular travel between our schools, and our Central Base and training facility in the jewellery quarter is essential as you will be required to work with our leaders and teachers, modelling best practice through teaching, as well as coaching and leading others to ensure we all achieve the same successes. You will have the opportunity to become a Specialist Leader of Education, if you are not already, as part of the RSAA Teaching School Alliance, to support school improvement within and beyond RSA Academies.

Our investment in you:

Our staff work together to ensure the best possible learning for the young people, by supporting each other through expertise and sharing so that our staff can be the best they can be. We will invest heavily in you, through our innovative talent management people strategy, including a detailed year-long induction programme and our innovative ‘Let’s Talk People’ strategy, so that you can invest in our staff and young people most effectively. You will receive TEEP training and have the opportunity to access level 2 TEEP training when appropriate.
