Director of Education job summary

The Omnia Learning Trust is recruiting for an exceptional primary practitioner to fill the role of Director of Education to lead on the Quality of Education and Standards across the Trust.

As a Trust, and as individuals, we know that with excellent teaching and high aspirations, all our children can make excellent progress and exceed expectations. We need a Director of Education who knows precisely how schools can ensure this happens. For this role, you will need the interpersonal skills to confidently work with our CEO, Board of Trustees, and school Principals, providing robust support and challenge throughout the academic year. To apply, you must be passionate about children securing the building blocks for academic success and bullish about accepting excuses.

You will have the creativity and vision to inspire excellence, with the personal resilience and tenacity to work through challenges.

This role is aimed at individuals who have recently led one, or perhaps two, exceptional primary schools at headship level, and who have achieved outcomes consistently above national averages. You will have a willingness to travel to our schools (spending a minimum of 18 days per year) working alongside Principals, meeting senior leaders, conducting lesson observations and learning walks.

You must have and maintain an in-depth understanding of primary curriculum developments from early years upwards, and experience of nursery education – our pupils range from 2 to 11 years old. You will need a forensic understanding of attainment and progress data, safeguarding practices and SEND matters.
