About the job:
This is a very exciting stage in our development to join. There are currently a number of lead practitioners across subjects, as well as post 16 provision, who work as part of the wider education and training team. We also have a number of lead practitioners who lead on aspects of enrichment and personal development. We are now looking to recruit a brilliant individual to take on the new role as Senior Lead Practitioner for Behaviour and Attitudes provision within our trust.
This exciting role will be critical in helping shape and develop further education for over 30,000 pupils in the Trust. This key post holder will assist all of our schools in ensuring that they have a positive behaviour culture. They will help leaders identity and remove barriers to engagement so all pupils can access their learning.
In doing so they will ensure that schools are working as partners with their parents and carers, and understand that there is often a need to support the family as well as the child to improve behaviour.
They will work with leaders to ensure systems are clear, robust, understood and applied fairly by all. This will suit a leader who is driven by wanting to facilitate a truly inclusive culture.
They will work with teachers to ensure that they are skilled and confident in managing behaviour effectively. This will suit a leader that still loves being in the classroom and creating an environment where children can thrive.
The support you offer our leaders and teachers will be vital in ensuring that all of our schools achieve the same successes. Joining a school improvement team led by a National Director, you will use your passion, knowledge and expertise to support schools from writing and implementing whole school strategies, to developing teachers at all levels in maintaining high expectations and managing behaviour effectively in the classroom. This in an exciting role that requires flexibility, a team spirit, and a continued willingness to learn.
This is one of the most senior strategic role for across one of the largest trusts in the country. As such, our expectations are high. We need someone with great impact and influence, with great vision but also the ability to make it a reality. You will need confidence without grand ego and we need moral purpose in spades.
