What skills and experience we're looking for

Leigh Academies Trust is ambitious about the progress and development of teaching and learning within its schools. Our mission is to create an outstanding organisation that inspires learners with excellence in academic achievement and personal development.

We are seeking to appoint an outstanding science practitioner with a proven track record of teaching excellence to join our expanding Academy Improvement Team and become our Lead Practitioner of Science for Easter 2023. You will help to inspire our committed and supportive team across the academy, modelling and leading the improvement of teaching skills to raise student achievement in all groups and to narrow any gaps in attainment. We warmly welcome applications from experienced teachers who are passionate about science and are dedicated to enabling students to make excellent progress.

Your focus will be on raising attainment in science by working with other teachers and leaders across the organisation. You will be expected to support colleagues to deliver their timetable to the very highest standards and be open-minded to step in and support when necessary. This is a unique, exciting opportunity for career development towards headship.

Achievement for all students regardless of background is our key objective. We offer stimulating learning environments where effective teaching and learning are underpinned by high-quality interpersonal relationships. If you are ambitious for yourself and the learners you serve, then you are the person we need.

What the school offers its staff

As a Lead Practitioner for Science, you will be part of a large team with a wide range of experience and expertise. The department continues to successfully train and develop trainee teachers and ECTs as a means of investing in the future of the department and the academy. With senior leaders also in the department, you will be able to rely on the expertise of established practitioners who will also play a part in working with you to continue to develop the science curriculum and implement this effectively. This is a fantastic opportunity for a highly effective practitioner to contribute and support the leadership of raising standards in teaching and learning across the department, which will inevitably have a positive and direct impact on pupils' learning and experience in science.
