This is an opportunity for an inspirational leader to improve the education of children across our primary schools.

United Learning is a group of schools which aims to provide excellent education and improve the life chances of all the children and young people we serve. 

With the overarching ethos of ‘bringing out the best in everyone’, our collaborative team of Regional Directors are committed to making a transformative impact on the lives of thousands of children and young people. Join us, and you will be entrusted with leading the improvement of several our Primary academies in the southern region, working with school leaders to raise standards and enhance their progress. Initially the focus will be on our south coast schools but over time extended to include schools in London.

On a day-to-day basis, we will expect you to line-manage several Headteachers. Reporting to the Director of Primary Education, you will use your previous experience as a Headteacher to support school leaders in developing improvement provisions, often in challenging contexts. We know that the educational profession is not easy, but at United Learning, we work as a team, achieving more by collaborating than any single school could on their own. Utilising collective knowledge and facilities to drive visionary results, you will therefore simplify work processes and implement ambitious support programmes, making the most of sector-leading subject specialists, a group-wide curriculum, our group-wide intranet and extensive CPD opportunities. With this support behind you, you will focus on the practicalities of elevating each of your academies to the highest standards.  

To make the most of this career-defining opportunity, you will need a strong track record in school leadership, including coaching others and developing effective school improvement strategies. With the chance to oversee group-wide strategic projects, you will bring well-developed relationship-building and influencing skills to the role, and your innovative mindset will deliver impactful change.  

United Learning is the largest national group of schools. And as a group, we can reward our staff better. From unique career progression opportunities and better pay to enhanced benefits and a highly-respected wellbeing programme, we will ensure you have the support you need to secure a great work/life balance – all while helping children to succeed. We are open to flexible working and will consider full or part-time, full year or term-time only.
