What skills and experience we're looking for

The Harris Federation is looking to appoint a new Teaching & Learning Consultant to join our established team of central primary consultants. We are interested to hear from experienced primary practitioners who would like to further develop their leadership experience within a highly collaborative and supportive environment.

This is a fantastic opportunity for an inspiring and highly motivated teacher to join a team of experienced specialists, and to work with senior leaders from across the Federation to help impact on the quality of teaching within our primary academies.

We are looking for:

  • QTS (or equivalent) and a relevant undergraduate degree
  • At least 5 years' teaching experience, and at least two years in a management role
  • A successful track record in teaching either EYFS, KS1 or KS2
  • Flexibility to travel to Harris academies

What the school offers its staff

Primary Education at Harris consists of 23 academies around London, with most located in areas of disadvantage, but many of which are amongst the highest performing in the country.

Our vision for Harris primary academies is that every child is safe, happy and respected. Despite in many cases replacing schools that had been considered failing by Ofsted, today the majority of Harris primaries are rated “Outstanding” and the others are “Good”.

By Year 6, the proportion of our pupils meeting expected standards in reading, writing and maths is well above average. Disadvantaged pupils, those with SEND and with English as an additional language all surpass national scores for their cohorts.

In addition to opportunities for career progression, training and development, we also offer a competitive rewards and benefits package which includes a Performance and Loyalty Bonus, Pension Scheme, electric car scheme, a Wellbeing Cash Plan and many other benefits.

Further details about the role

This is a unique opportunity to fast track your career. You will have the chance to gain new skills and expertise, and to extend your understanding of different leadership and teaching approaches. The role involves coaching and mentoring, team teaching classes, modelling best practice, assisting in the recruitment of outstanding teachers, and developing CPD opportunities. The post holder will also have the opportunity to work with our ITE team, offering subject mentoring to Harris trainee teachers.

Whilst consultants have a base at Head Office in Croydon, they spend the vast majority of their time working on-site at academies.

Commitment to safeguarding

The Harris Federation and all our academies are committed to ensuring the highest levels of safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, and we expect all our staff and volunteers to share in this commitment. All offers of employment are subject to an Enhanced DBS check, references, and where applicable, a prohibition from teaching check will be completed for all applicants. Before applying, please review our Policy Statement on the Recruitment of Ex-Offenders.
