The post offers an exciting opportunity to work across two of our state of the art schools.

The Lead Practitioners are a team of driven and ambitious teachers who work collaboratively to drive up standards and develop themselves professionally through the extensive CPD opportunities afforded to them.
Our belief is that every child really does matter and that all of our students should feel engaged, challenged and supported in an environment where they can experience success and enjoy their learning.
The successful candidate must have:

• Access to a network of successful schools to share best practice and develop career prospects at the highest level.

Our approach is based on a fundamental belief that all young people have the talent and the potential to achieve more than they ever thought possible. Alongside the family of schools, the CAT has established a teaching school which ensures CPD opportunities are abundant for all, no matter what stage of your career you are at. The school is set in Telford, a bustling town centre nestled in the backdrop of the idyllic Shropshire countryside. There are a wealth of diverse attractions, both historical and contemporary, that attract visitors. The Ironbridge gorge is very popular, as are the picturesque market towns of Much Wenlock and Newport. Also, the excellent transport links mean that cities such as Birmingham and Manchester are in easy reach for further exploration.
