SALARY:  MPS/UPS (ECTs welcome to apply)


LOCATION:  The Ravensbourne School, Hayes Lane, Bromley BR2 9EH

REPORTING TO: Head of Department

All teachers at The Ravensbourne School are viewed as both leaders and managers of the academic and pastoral curriculum.

Definition of leadership is defined as: “Identifying and articulating the shared values of the school. Leaders then implement these values and the organisations’ vision for the future through planning. At this school, leadership is not solely located behind one person’s door. It is a shared, collective responsibility to lead the school in the formulation and implementation of its values. The school will seek opinions and canvass for involvement on strategic issues. It is expected that at this level of responsibility, the postholder is aware of the nature of leadership and contributes as much as possible.”

Definition of Management is defined as: “Working with individuals and teams to achieve tasks. It is a means to an end. At the most fundamental level, every time we enter a classroom, we are managers of the learning process. Others have additional management roles. The point is simple: we are all managers of the education process.”
