A secondment opportunity to lead on the LIT Programme.
We welcome applications from an experienced Key Stage 2 or 3 English teacher who has delivered highly effective literacy provision and who can lead Hackney’s successful Year 7 intervention programme.
The Hackney Learning Trust is a not-for-profit company which runs education services for the London Borough of Hackney. We are responsible for Hackney’s 27,000 pupils in over 70 schools, and its children’s centres, early years and adult education settings. Our vision is to provide an excellent education service so that every child, young person and adult learner can fulfil their potential.
The Hackney Learning Trust has a strong national reputation. As part of our work in developing literacy in secondary schools, we have developed the LIT Programme to help schools to improve their outcomes and deliver good or better educational provision. This is a bespoke intervention designed to improve thinking, Spoken English, grammar, reading and writing skills of struggling Year 7 pupils. The LIT Programme is a proven and respected approach to boost attainment at Key Stage 3. It is currently used in over 200 secondary schools across the UK.
The Hackney Learning Trust is looking for a dynamic teacher to run the LIT Programme for a one year maternity cover. You will have a passion for raising pupils’ achievement, a strong interest in literacy intervention and the skills to lead and deliver effective training workshops. This is an exciting role. It offers excellent training and leadership opportunities for a teacher who is ready to develop their career further. The role is available as a secondment provided the applicants have the approval of their Head Teacher. You would join a well-established and high performing team.
The key strands of the role will be to:
- Run engaging and appealing training sessions for clients who, as a result, will lead the LIT Programme in their schools.
- Market the LIT Programme to potential new customers and to meet sales targets.
- Communicate with confidence, passion and authority about the LIT Programme in a range of contexts including teachers’ network meetings, education conferences and workshops.
- Support and coach LIT Programme hub schools selected to showcase good practice.
