Contract term: Permanent

The Institute for Teaching is a specialist graduate school for teachers. Our courses have a single purpose - to ensure that teachers are able to keep getting better.

We believe that having an expert teacher in every classroom is the best way to make sure that every pupil, regardless of their background, gets a great education. But teaching is complex and becoming an expert isn’t easy. To improve teaching, we must improve the training teachers receive because most of what’s out there isn’t helping them to get better.

That’s why we are doing things differently - re-thinking teacher education and providing a progression pathway to expertise that is taught by a faculty of expert teacher educators. Teachers deserve as much effort to go into their training as they put into their teaching.

We are looking for a talented individual to join our team and welcome applications from both primary and secondary specialists. Our Training Managers deliver teacher development to staff in schools registered on our Transforming Teaching programme. Central to this work is the delivery of high quality face-to-face training to groups of teachers. The post-holder will also be responsible for supporting the school to implement coaching and co-planning models, through training sessions and modelling best practice to the school’s teacher educators.

To excel in this role, the post-holder will need to build strong relationships with teachers in a range of contexts, adapting their training delivery to different audiences and motivating them to change their practice. They should be flexible, highly organised and detail orientated. They will be a self-starter with a flexible approach to work and willingness to do whatever it takes to reach our goals.

The deadline for applying is 09.00 on Monday 19th February. Please do so by following the instructions in the attached job pack.
