EdTech Demonstrator Programme Project Lead

Sandringham SchoolHertfordshire

We are looking to appoint a talented, enthusiastic and ambitious project lead to support the successful operation of the EdTech Demonstrator Programme at Sandringham School. The programme is a Department for Education funded project made up of 55 demonstrator schools, of which Sandringham is one. The programme provides peer to peer support, helping schools and colleges with expert advice and guidance about integrating digital tools and technologies within education. More information about the programme itself can be found via https://edtech-demonstrator.lgfl.net/  or https://sandagogy.co.uk/edtech/ .

The ideal candidate will have extensive experience of using digital tools within education and preferably have had strategic oversight of implementing technology within a school or college setting. Working with other schools and organisations is a fundamental part of the role and therefore having experience in this area would be beneficial.

This position is initially fixed term for one year and 0.6 FTE, however, depending on your subject specialism, we would be keen to combine this role with a 0.4 FTE teaching position to make this a full-time appointment. If this is of interest to you, please express this in your letter of application.

  • Over £10 million has been invested in developing the learning environment in the past five years to provide a state-of-the-art learning campus.

  • The school currently runs a Teaching School Alliance which from September will be a National Teaching School Hub, is a Research School, is an Awarding Body for Initial Teacher Training, holds International status and embraces excellence in all areas of the curriculum.
  • Staff who work at the school receive outstanding training and gain significant career experience.
  • Staff can benefit from the school’s children of staff admission rule, a cycle to work scheme, childcare vouchers and access to a wide variety of school trips.
