The Institute for Teaching is a specialist graduate school for teachers. Our courses have a single purpose - to ensure that teachers are able to keep getting better.
We believe that having an expert teacher in every classroom is the best way to make sure that every pupil, regardless of their background, gets a great education. But teaching is complex and becoming an expert isn’t easy. To improve teaching we must improve the training teachers receive because most of what’s out there isn’t helping them to get better.
That’s why we are doing things differently - re-thinking teacher education and providing a progression pathway to expertise that is taught by a faculty of expert teacher educators. Teachers deserve as much effort to go into their training as they put into their teaching.
We are looking for two exceptional individuals to join our team. Our Fellows will lead the delivery of our Transforming Teaching programme, a whole school programme that seeks to bring about rapid improvement in pupil outcomes in some of the country’s most vulnerable schools. The successful candidate will build highly effective relationships with our school partners and inspire our teams of trainers to deliver exceptional training for teachers and teacher educators.
In order to excel in this role, the post-holder will need to able to enthuse not only their team but teachers and leaders within our partner schools, persuading and influencing thinking. They should be flexible, highly organised, detail orientated and able prioritise their own and others work to meet deadlines. They will be a self-starter with a flexible approach to work and willingness to do whatever it takes, tenaciously holding themselves to account for delivery of our goals.
The deadline for applying is 9.00 on Monday 19th February. To apply please follow the instructions in the attached job pack.
