What skills and experience we're looking for

Are you an experienced and successful head looking for a role where you will have wider impact? Do you hold the principles of family, collaboration and integrity close to your heart? If so, we’d like to hear from you.

At The Kemnal Academies Trust (TKAT) we believe that for all of our staff to be truly fulfilled and successful, they need to be heard, developed and empowered. Therefore we are looking for someone who can demonstrate our values of shared voice, shared belief and shared success to work within our TKAT family.

We are currently looking for a secondary Director of Education to join our school development team. In the first phase of this role, the successful candidate will initially work as Executive Headteacher in one school alongside an existing Headteacher to rapidly improve the provision and outcomes. The next phase will broaden the remit as Director of Education across our Coast region of secondary schools.

What the school offers its staff

We are looking for a candidate who can demonstrate a track record of sustained school improvement whilst operating within the Trust’s ethos of working inclusively, respecting and caring for others, and having ambition and aspiration for all. You will be able to demonstrate the ability to develop, motivate and empower teams, work with agility to achieve the best outcomes for students, and employ high levels of emotional intelligence to galvanise school communities to bring about sustainable change.

Experience of successful headship, particularly in challenging situations or areas of deprivation, is essential to this role.

If you would like to know more about this post or to organise an informal discussion, please contact Matt Batchelor, Senior Director of Education
