The Role:

We are seeking individuals to join the Central RSA Academies School Improvement Team. As RSA Academies, we aim to develop exceptional learners by developing outstanding professionals. Our vision is to ensure social justice through exceptional schools.  

We believe in potential as much as experience. You will be a great teacher; you don’t have to have done it for many years to be a strong fit for this role!

Led by our School Improvement Leader, you will use your passion, expertise and subject knowledge in Maths to drive forward the quality of teaching and learning across all our Academies, working in secondary ages 11-19. Close liaison with primary colleagues through our co-design subject networks will be integral to the role, and you will take a lead role in our Maths Co-Design Subject Team. Regular travel between our schools and our base and training facility in The Assay Studios, in the Jewellery Quarter, is essential as you will be required to work with our leaders and teachers, modelling best practice through teaching, as well as coaching and leading others to ensure we all achieve the same successes.  You will have a base school and, in the first instance and to support your induction, the majority of your week will be based in one hub, where you will be expected to teach. You will have the opportunity to become a Specialist Leader of Education, if you are not already, as part of the RSAA Teaching School Alliance, to support school improvement within and beyond RSA Academies.

Our investment in you:

Our staff work together to ensure the best possible learning for our young people, by supporting each other through expertise and sharing so that our staff can be the best they can be. We will invest heavily in you, through our innovative talent management people strategy, including a detailed year-long induction programme and our innovative ‘Let’s Talk People’ strategy, so that you can invest in our young people most effectively. You will receive TEEP training and have the opportunity to access level 2 TEEP training when appropriate.

Our Trust:

Social Justice through Exceptional Schools.  Do you want to be part of an organisation with a powerful vision and strong values? The Central RSA Academies Trust is a group of primary and secondary RSA Academies with a strong link with the Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce (known as the Royal Society of Arts, The RSA). This is an incredibly exciting opportunity to join a forward-thinking, Midlands-based, Multi Academy Trust with a moral drive to ensure the best educational outcomes for our students and striving to make a difference to the lives of our young people. We currently have six schools within our Trust, with children from the age of three up to sixth form aged young adults. Our schools are in two hubs: in Tipton, in the Black Country, and in Worcestershire.
