The successful candidates will have good subject knowledge and be able to motivate pupils through inspirational teaching. They will be joining a very well-led, vibrant and successful team, committed to providing a quality experience for our students and ensuring that they achieve their full potential.

Saltley Academy is a 11-16 comprehensive school in the heart of multi-cultural Birmingham. The Academy is progressing fast in its mission to develop outstanding learners, ensure academic success and nurture happy citizens in a supportive and inspiring environment.

The way in which they conduct themselves reflects the tolerant and inclusive school.” The Academy is also a UNICEF Rights Respecting Gold Award School.

The Academy is part of the Washwood Heath Multi-Academy Trust and shares its core values. Being a member of the Trust provides numerous professional development opportunities. As a member of the Trust, the Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff to share this commitment. An enhanced DBS check will be required for the successful candidate.

  • A collaborative and inclusive culture, where team members will upskill you and give you regular opportunities to learn from each other in a safe and collaborative environment, both within your schools and Trust-wide.
  • An opportunity to undertake structured CPD via access to the National College online CPD platform and/or apprenticeships such as Level 7 Senior Leaders Masters, with regular twilights.
  • Access to Career Pathways and Pledge to help you plan for and make your goals a reality via our Professional Growth and Performance (PPG) process.
  • A wellbeing culture, with paid and unpaid time off to support life events via our Life Leave Policy, access to a Wellbeing Champion and the opportunity to participate in our annual staff wellbeing survey with Edurio, so we know and can respond to views.

  • Access to a suite of supportive policies, such as Life Leave, Wellbeing, Career Break and Family Friendly.
