This is a unique, newly created role designed to support, develop and oversee all aspects of the Learning Academies Trust’s teaching and learning activity with a key focus on school improvement.  A challenging yet rewarding opportunity, you will be accountable for the educational performance of the Trust supported by the CEO.

We have eight diverse primary schools; two ‘outstanding’, three ‘good’ and three ‘requires improvement’ as graded by Ofsted. All are inner city schools serving disadvantaged communities in the heart of Plymouth, educating just under 3000 children.

We are looking for an experienced, influential education leader trained and experienced in the new Ofsted framework, with the ability to inspire and drive sustainable performance, and who shares a deep understanding of our educational vision and purpose.
