Strategic Director of the South Yorkshire Teaching Hub

Chorus Education TrustSheffield

The South Yorkshire Teaching Hub is a new organisation within Chorus Education Trust, based at Silverdale School. The Hub is one of the pilot Teaching School Hubs, funded by the Department for Education and will be part of a national network of 87 Teaching Hubs.

The Hub will be the place to go for professional development – for both current teachers and those looking to join the profession. It will develop, co-ordinate and promote the work of a range of partners across Sheffield and Rotherham, supporting the journey of teachers from Initial Teaching Training (ITT) to becoming Headteachers and Chief Executive Officers. 

The Strategic Director will be an outstanding leader who is able to articulate the vision, values and ethos of the South Yorkshire Teaching Hub and will inspire and empower others to share in achieving them. 

The Strategic Director will come from a successful leadership position and will take responsibility for providing the strategic direction and delivery models to recruit, train and develop teachers and school leaders, within the Sheffield and Rotherham region, to secure improved outcomes for young people.

The post will report to the Chief Executive Officer, the Teaching School Governors Sub-Committee and the Strategic Board for the Hub. In addition, the Strategic Director will be required to report to other key stakeholders, including the DfE.

The Strategic Board is open to discussing the remuneration package for the appropriate candidate. 

The South Yorkshire Teaching Hub is part of Chorus Education Trust, and as such all appointees may be required to work at any Trust site in the future.
