Curriculum and Teacher Training Lead (Vocational and Technical Programmes)
The Curriculum and Teacher Training Lead is responsible for ensuring school leaders and teachers have the training and support they need to successfully deliver the various elements of the Professional Pathways programme including: the curriculum content across Applied Science, Business and IT Level 3 BTEC, English and Maths GCSE resits; quality assurance and administration of the qualifications; delivery of the bespoke work readiness curriculum. The person will therefore play a critical role in understanding how to help teachers to intellectually prepare to provide a rounded education to the young people taking vocational qualifications.
The ideal candidate will be an experienced vocational teacher who has experience of training others and is keen to bring their passion for improving student outcomes, specifically on vocational and technical courses, to a rapidly expanding programme.

Ark's head office is currently based in Holborn, London, but we will be relocating to a new West London office (based in zone 2), from January 2020. The new office is close to two tube stations served by three underground lines, and an overground line. It’s in an area of London which is up and coming, with new cafes and shops popping up regularly, and the Westfield shopping centre a short walk away.
The new location in Notting Dale, will be a short walk from Shepherds Bush (Central Line and Overground) and Latimer Road and Wood Lane (Hammersmith and City and Circle Line).
Ark is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people in our academies. In order to meet this responsibility, we follow a rigorous selection process. This process is outlined here, but can be provided in more detail if requested. All successful candidates will be subject to an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check.
