Job summary

Learning without Limits Academy Trust is looking to appoint Teaching and Learning Lead Teachers.

LwLAT is a small multi-academy trust based in the heart of Leicester city, serving diverse and vibrant communities. Being a relatively new trust, and having been asked to take on many challenging schools at the time of our inception, we have spent the first two years of our life ‘repairing’ some of the schools we work with. We are now at an incredibly exciting phase of our development where our schools are ready to leap forward both in terms of their practice and their outcomes for the young people we work with.
With this in mind, we are now in the process of developing a new trust wide school improvement model that places high quality teaching and learning at the heart of everything we do. We are in the privileged position to be able to invest in the best people to lead the teaching and learning agenda across our family of schools. This key role will be supporting our fantastic teaching teams to grow their practice and help our schools become the best they can be.
We are being intentionally flexible in the subject / phase specialisms and also the start dates in order to secure the best people. In return for your commitment we would fully expect these positions to grow over time and become an integral part of our strategy to grow our own school improvement capacity.
For a confidential and informal conversation to discuss this opportunity please contact me via email at jhenrys@lwlat.org.uk to arrange a time to discuss over the phone.
