Trust Lead Humanities

Aldridge EducationNorth West

It’s a really exciting time to be considering working for Aldridge Education. At the start of an exciting journey to excellence, this is the perfect time to make your mark with us!

Aldridge Education is looking to appoint an outstanding Humanities practitioner to work across our schools in Darwen and Salford. We are one of the top Trusts in the country at KS5 and we wish to transport this success to rapidly improve standards at other key stages across our schools. The successful candidate will work alongside their Humanities colleague in the Southern schools and as part of the wider national education team.

Suitable for a successful Head of Department or Lead Practitioner who has shown themselves to be a strong classroom practitioner and a skilled leader, we’re looking for people who really understand how to support rapid improvement. You may have experience as a senior leader, but this is not essential. You’ll have proven yourself in your work to date and be highly ambitious to progress further. Whatever stage your career is at, if you meet the criteria and have the passion for this work, we’re interested in talking to you.

Candidates will ideally have effective management experience and will be capable of working peripatetically, to raise standards across several Humanities departments. This is a marvellous opportunity for colleagues who wish to progress their careers, but stay within their chosen subject discipline. The successful candidate will contribute to our wider educational team work including curriculum development, raising student outcomes, teaching and learning improvement and developing middle leaders across the Trust.

Working closely with our CEO, this is an exciting opportunity to be a key driver in MAT improvement and, as a result, to grow your career with us.

This unique role will interact closely with the rest of the education team to ensure that teaching methods are consistent across the Trust. It is expected that practitioners will have an exceptional knowledge of curriculum frameworks and provide support for departments who are developing their curriculum offer in light of the Ofsted Framework.

The Recruitment Pack will provide more details about Aldridge Education for interested candidates. The closing date for applications is Monday 1 March 2021. All applications will be acknowledged on receipt. Shortlisting will be carried out shortly afterwards and candidates will be notified to confirm their attendance at the interview stage. Interviews and associated assessment activities are likely to be conducted Thursday 11 March 2021. Our successful candidate will join us in September 2021.
