The Blue Coat School is seeking to appoint a dynamic individual to support the growth and quality of its Initial Teacher Education through the Manchester Nexus SCITT.
The successful candidate will work to support the SCITT Director to lead and manage recruitment for ITE, provide support in the planning and delivery of training and quality assure the progress of trainees across a partnership of 30 schools.
You will work closely with the SCITT Director, Course lead (Assistant Head) and SCITT Administrator to lead and manage recruitment for ITE and provide support in the planning and delivery of training and quality assuring provision across a partnership of over 30 schools.
You will be exceptionally well-organised, meticulous on detail (a lot of compliance is involved), and creative. We have to get the best trainees to want to come to us, and work in our area and our schools, and once we have attracted them, we have to keep them.
The person appointed will be a qualified teacher and teach 6-8 periods per week but be otherwise supporting the work of the SCITT.
This role offers the opportunity to develop leadership and management skills, and will entail communicating with applicants, the SCITT Board; the wider school re the continuation of teacher training and development. There is some financial management involved, project planning, future-thinking, and, of course, inspection.
It is an excellent opportunity to be at the forefront of the roll-out of school-based ITE in a nationally accredited organisation, and at the heart of teacher development.
The job description and person specification and application form is located on our website, and the right person for this job will be someone who has been involved in ITE and understands the challenges and requirements.
