The Diocese of Guildford is looking to appoint a full-time Deputy Director of Education to join its Education Team to lead on the development and delivery of school effectiveness support for our 85 church schools.
Guildford Diocese is part of the Church of England and one of 41 dioceses covering England. The diocese has 85 Church of England schools and academies located across three Local Authorities of Surrey, Hampshire and Kingston.
This is a key senior post suited to an experienced school or system leader who will work with headteachers and governors to support our ambition to continue to raise standards in our family of church schools.
Working closely with the Director of Education and a dynamic education team, the Deputy Director will be responsible for the planning and implementation of the school effectiveness strategy in response to the national inspection frameworks including Ofsted and SIAMS.
The post holder will be based at the Education Centre and the new Diocesan offices in Guildford and will be expected to travel to schools for visits and meetings.
We have high standards and expectations of our staff and offer an attractive, competitive salary for an experienced and qualified candidate - staff members are eligible for a non-contributory pension scheme.
Our vision for transforming education is to support the nurturing and flourishing of every pupil in our church schools - if you are committed to helping children and adults be the best they can be, we would love to hear from you.
