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 an experienced leader to join our team. We welcome applications from both primary and secondary specialists. Our Tutors are senior figures in our regional delivery team, managing relationships with different stakeholders. In addition to delivering outstanding training sessions to teachers and teacher educators, Tutors support our schools to implement coaching and co-planning models. In this they will be accountable for the quality of this in-school coaching and co-planning. Tutors play a key role in our quality assurance and impact monitoring, requiring them to liaise with a number of key stakeholders in order to support the design and evaluation of our programmes.
To excel in this role, the post-holder will need to able to build relationships with people at varying levels of seniority, motivate people to change their practice, and hold them to account. They should be flexible, highly organised and detail orientated. They will be a self-starter, flexible and willing to do whatever it takes to achieve our goals.
