Central office staff work closely with schools, offering a wealth of expertise to underpin schools’ own knowledge. Our specialist departments, including HR, finance, technology, strategy and performance, estates, and marketing, work alongside dedicated school improvement teams. By joining us, you will provide ongoing support to schools, ultimately improving the outcomes of our pupils.
As Science Subject Advisor to our growing portfolio of Secondary Academies in the North of England, you’ll embody our ethos of bringing out ’the best in everyone’. Leading science-specific improvement work, you’ll support departments to improve progress and attainment.
Working collaboratively with twelve schools (with more expansion likely) you’ll make a difference to thousands of students’ lives. Focusing on the quality of teaching and learning from KS3 up to KS5, you will be instrumental in developing our curriculum and assessment approach. You’ll also play a vital role in helping departments to build capacity, make sustainable improvements, and implement the new GCSE. Carefully diagnosing strengths and weaknesses, you’ll work closely with subject leaders and teachers to help them follow best practice and achieve their development goals.
To join us, you’ll need proven experience of teaching science, coaching teachers and shaping strategies for improving outcomes in schools at KS3, 4 and ideally 5. Your outstanding subject knowledge is matched by your passion and enthusiasm for communicating it to others. Committed to driving up standards of achievement, you’ll bring to the role an up-to-date knowledge of the science curriculum, twinned with exceptional relationship building and influencing skills.
United Learning is a large, and growing, group of schools aiming to offer a life changing education to children and young people across England.
Our schools work as a team and achieve more by sharing than any single school could. Our subject specialists, our Group-wide intranet, our own curriculum and our online learning portal all help us share knowledge and resource, helping to simplify work processes and manage workloads for an improved work-life balance.
As a Group, we can reward our staff better: with good career opportunities, better pay, benefits, and ultimately, the satisfaction of helping children to succeed. We invest in our staff wellbeing. Our academies each have at least eight INSET days per year (with three of those solely dedicated to planning), and an ongoing group-wide wellbeing programme. It's an ethos we call ‘the best in everyone’.
United Learning is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
