Who we are looking for 

We are looking for a talented professional to join our Impact Governance team as Associate Dean, Participant Assessment and Impact. The role is responsible for leading the cross-organisational work designing how we assess participant learning and behaviour change. 

This role is also responsible for leading and overseeing the analysis and presentation of the assessment data so that we are able to draw actionable insights from what our participants have and have not learned. This is a fantastic opportunity to support the broader continuous improvement work ensuring this is data driven with participant learning and behaviour change at the centre.

Based in either our Birmingham, London or Manchester office, and reporting to the Impact Governance Dean, you’ll lead on the reporting of participant assessment data to multiple governance levels (e.g. Executive Committee, trustees) and external audiences (e.g. DfE, Ofsted). 

This exciting role is varied and complex, and will require someone with a track record of excellent teaching and/or leadership. You’ll have fluency in the latest education research including up-to-date, research informed knowledge about how pupils, teachers and school leaders best learn, how this can be assessed, and a breadth of professional knowledge of what this might look like in practice. 

Who are Ambition Institute? 

At Ambition Institute we help schools tackling educational disadvantage to keep getting better, and help their teachers and school leaders to become more expert over time. That’s how we’ll make sure every child gets a great education and the best possible start in life.  

> We train teachers and leaders at all levels to get better at the things that make the biggest difference: what you teach, how you teach it, and how you create the conditions for schools to thrive.  

> We share what works. Everyone can benefit from evidence of how great teaching and leadership can improve schools and change lives, so we connect people to the latest research and best practice.  

> We champion every teacher and school leader’s potential to develop, as the driving force for sustainable school improvement.
