You will lead on the design, development and promotion of the education offer for the region, and as appropriate, you will also lead on aspects of the wider network strategy. As a highly influential advocate for the region, you will work closely with the region’s senior leaders to strengthen the profile of Ark and each of our schools with parents, stakeholders and the entire community we serve.
