As part of this strategy we are seeking a dynamic and inspirational leader and secondary English specialist to work as part of our school improvement and curriculum team. This is an exciting opportunity for a high-performing English expert with a proven track record in achieving exceptional outcomes to have a significant impact across several schools.

The successful candidate will be integral to our school improvement strategy and will take a leadership role within that, as part of a wider English team.

There will be opportunities to play a part in our school-based Initial Teacher Training programme training the classroom leaders of the future, and to and contribute to our longer term curriculum development work, making this a very exciting role. 

The Trust has a strong programme of professional development for its staff, with regular courses run by some of the best-known names in education.

The role will be based at our Norwich curriculum centre but will involve regular work at our schools across Norfolk and north Suffolk. The Trust may offer support with relocation costs for candidates moving from outside the area.
