Guidance Manager job summary

Are you an inspirational and determined individual looking for a new challenge? Are you passionate about pastoral care and helping pupils become responsible young adults? Are you determined that all students within your care will reach their full potential? Do you have a clear understanding of the importance of pupil safeguarding?

For September 2024, we are seeking to appoint two ambitious, charismatic, and innovative Guidance Managers to provide outstanding pastoral care. You will be passionate about education and how pastoral care and academic achievement can enrich the lives of our students. This is a fantastic opportunity to join an established pastoral team and contribute to the development of an Academy that provides a first class education for all of its learners.

We are part of the Washwood Heath Multi Academy Trust which is a family of local schools located within 15 minutes of one another: 4 Primary schools, 2 Secondary schools and 1 All-through school. This will give you the opportunity to grow and develop professionally with a fantastic Academy Trust that is very supportive and collaborative with a strong sense of community.

We can offer you:

A collaborative and inclusive culture, where team members will upskill you and give you regular opportunities to learn from each other in a safe and collaborative environment.

An opportunity to undertake structured CPD via access to the National College online CPD platform and/or apprenticeships such as [the CIPD or Coaching via our Apprenticeship Levy-amend examples based on roles].

Access to Career Pathways and Pledge to help you plan for and make your goals a reality via our Professional Growth and Performance process.

A wellbeing culture, with paid and unpaid time off to support life events via our Life Leave Policy, access to a Wellbeing Champion and the opportunity to participate in our annual staff wellbeing survey with Edurio, so we know and can respond to views.

Access to 24/7 Employee Assistance Programme (EAP), which includes confidential counselling, access to wellbeing advice and a lifestyle app called “My Possible Self”.

Access to a suite of supportive policies, such as Life Leave, Wellbeing, Career Break and Family Friendly.

Access to a generous pension scheme known as the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS).

Access to a comprehensive employee rewards package including Long Service Awards, Employee Referral Scheme, Cycle to Work Scheme and contribution to glasses and eye-sight tests for eligible display screen users.

Opportunity to be part of key Trust-wide collaborative groups such as the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI working group) and Wellbeing working groups, including menopause support and neurodiversity support.

Generous annual leave entitlement based on length of service, starting at 30 days pro-rata, rising to 33 at 5 years’ plus service and 35 following 10 years’ plus service. This excludes an additional 2-week paid compulsory closure at Christmas, for which additional days’ leave are gained.

Onsite parking at all schools.

We are looking for an inspirational and caring individual who put children at the heart of everything that they do and who can demonstrate our ‘Hearts’ values and embrace ‘The Washwood Way’.

The successful candidates will be passionate about pastoral care and working with children to help them fulfil their potential. They should have excellent IT skills, be well organised, have a professional approach to work and be able to prioritise workloads to meet deadlines. Excellent oral and written communication skills are also key aspects of the role.
