Brent is a tremendously vibrant London borough where the iconic arch of Wembley Stadium dominates the skyline. Spanning both inner and outer London, it is a borough of huge contrasts in terms of its economic, environmental, ethnic and social make up. Brent’s diversity is evident to all who visit our borough and our long history of ethnic and cultural diversity has created a place that is truly unique and valued by those who live and work here.
The council is pursuing a far-reaching transformation agenda that better meets the needs of our community so it is an exciting time to join us.
As a Setting and School Effectiveness Lead with responsibility for the quality of early years provision, you will be a key member of the Setting and School Effectiveness Service's senior leadership team, leading highly motivated early years professionals and working with school leaders in order to secure high quality provision in Brent that ensures all children achieve the best possible outcomes.
We are seeking a highly motivated colleague with recent, relevant and substantial senior leadership experience in a culturally diverse primary school or local authority, with a proven track record of ensuring high quality education provision. You will have knowledge of the current legislative and professional context in which schools and early years settings operate, and the challenges this context presents. The ability to make sound judgements on the basis of evidence, identify key issues accurately, understand indicators of performance, and interpret data accurately is essential.
