Job summary

The role:
We seek an outstanding science specialist to be part of our successful multi academy trust. The successful candidate will lead on the continuous improvement of an ambitious and equitable Trust-wide science curriculum and work with science leaders in schools to ensure this curriculum is well-implemented. The role will also involve quality assurance, research, coaching and mentoring of science teachers and leaders, and working with others to ensure that children benefit from excellent science teaching in all our academies.
Key responsibilities
In order to improve the quality of provision in science in academies throughout the Trust, you will:
• Review and improve the Trust science curriculum.
• Evaluate the quality of provision within science departments.
• Provide mentoring, coaching, and professional development to science teachers and leaders across the Trust.
• Identify and share best practice in science teaching across the Trust.
• Oversee the work of three secondary assessment leads (one for each science), ensuring the assessments they set are robust and comprehensive.
• Work with individual academies as appropriate to ensure high quality recruitment, selection and retention of science staff.
In all these areas you will need to be tactful and assertive: challenging and supporting schools in order to secure the best provision for children.
Where urgent improvement is required, you may be required to teach examination groups or provide leadership support to individual schools for short periods of time.
You will keep records of your work and report orally, and in writing, to individual schools, the school improvement team and trustees.
You will promote and safeguard the welfare of the children and young people that you are responsible for, or come into contact with.
The Trust
The Trust comprises eleven academies spread across the East and West Midlands: five secondaries, five primaries and one all-through academy. The Trust has a deep commitment to school-to-school support both within and beyond the Trust and as a result of this Tudor Grange Academy Solihull has been recently designated as a Teaching School Hub.
The Curriculum Adviser: Science will join a permanent School Improvement Team, working with curriculum and leadership advisers to improve the quality of provision in trust schools and our partner schools. The role will involve travel to different academies but will be based for at least some of the time in the Trust hub in Tudor Grange Academy, Solihull.
Application Process
Informal conversations or meetings can be arranged regarding this post and are most welcome. Please contact dgreen@tgacademy.org.uk
Completed applications must be submitted to Claire Maclean, via Dot Green, P.A. to the CEO, by 3.00pm on Tuesday 20th April, via email to dgreen@tgacademy.org.uk
The recruitment process is robust in seeking to establish the commitment of candidates to support the school’s measures to safeguard children and to identify, deter or reject people who might pose a risk of harm to children or are otherwise unsuited to work with them.

All applications will be considered on their merit and the post will be offered subject to the usual health and criminal record clearance. We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
