Contract type: Full Time
Salary: £53,000 - £57,000 depending on experience
Contract term: Permanent

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 History Subject Advisor to our growing portfolio of Secondary Academies (30+) you will embody our ethos of bringing out ’the best in everyone’. Leading subject specific improvement work, you will support departments to raise standards and improve progress and attainment.

Working collaboratively with Heads of Department and their teams you will make a difference to thousands of students’ lives. Focusing on the quality of teaching and learning from KS3 up to KS5, you will play a vital role in helping departments to build capacity and make sustainable improvements. You will be a key figure in the implementation of a KS3 curriculum based on mastery principles. Carefully diagnosing strengths and weaknesses, you will work closely with subject leaders and teachers to help them follow best practice and enable all learners to achieve.

To join us, you will need proven experience of teaching, coaching, and shaping strategies for improving History outcomes in schools at KS3, KS4 and (ideally) KS5. Your outstanding subject knowledge is matched by your passion and enthusiasm for communicating it to others. Committed to driving up standards of achievement, you will bring to the role a passion for your subject and up-to-date curriculum knowledge, twinned with exceptional relationship building and influencing skills.

Our schools have a national reach, from Carlisle in the North to Bognor Regis on the South Coast. Extensive travel will be required although working from home and supporting schools remotely will also be a key requirement of the role.
