This is an exciting opportunity for an ambitious person looking to advance their career into school leadership. Godmanchester Community Education Trust is an expanding Multi-Academy Trust, looking to grow its team of senior leaders, and needs an additional outstanding and inspirational leader to join them.

You will develop your leadership under the guidance of our Executive Headteacher and Head of School, obtaining skills in leadership which will enable you to progress further within the Trust.

The vacancy is a result of the continued success and growth of the Multi Academy Trust. There is an exciting vision for education across GCET schools and, by joining our senior leadership team, you will have the opportunity to develop as a leader across more than one school. GCET’s vision involves developing specialist teachers dedicated to specific curriculum areas, but not solely teaching one subject.

For the first year the post will be based at the Godmanchester Community Academy, with a proportion of time class based. The role will then develop towards full time school leadership and potentially a Head of School post.

We are looking for someone who:

  • Is well-organised, highly motivated and full of ideas;
  • Believes in maximising every opportunity to ensure pupils achieve high standards;
  • Has the ability and desire to inspire and support people to achieve;
  • Has a desire to focus on, and specialise in, the Teaching and Learning aspects of school leadership.

We can offer

  • Exciting opportunities for real growth as a leader across a MAT
  • The opportunity to be a part of a successful new school
  • Individually tailored ongoing professional development

This post offers an opportunity for the right person to develop into a school leader through experience, support and CPD and for that person to become a key participant in the leadership of our schools.
