We are delighted that you’re interested in this role – it couldn’t be a more exciting time to join us. We are a new organisation formed out of the merger of Ambition School Leadership and the Institute for Teaching.

We know that great teaching and school leadership are the most powerful levers for transforming children’s outcomes. Effective leaders set the culture and create the conditions for improvements in teacher expertise, and expert teachers can close the attainment gap. Yet too much professional development for teachers and school leaders is low-quality, generic and fragmented.

Our new organisation, launching in Spring 2019, will have a single focus: to help teachers and school leaders to keep getting better. We think that this is the best way to make sure that every pupil, regardless of their background, gets a great education.

We will be the largest teaching and school leadership development provider in England, with more than ten years of collective experience working with everyone from new teachers to multi-academy trust CEOs and all of the roles in between.

Through our evidence-based programmes, we’ll work with schools serving low-income communities to provide high-quality development for educators at all levels, built on an understanding of what schools really need to improve. Our work is informed by the latest research and practice from the front line. Moreover, it’s shaped constantly by our partnerships with schools and trusts across the sector and the front line experience of our network of teachers and leaders.

We are looking for a talented individual to join our team and welcome applications from both primary and secondary specialists.

Our Training Managers deliver teacher development to staff in schools registered on our Transforming Teaching Programme. Central to this work is the delivery of high quality face-to-face training to group of teachers. The post holder will be responsible for supporting the school to implement coaching and co-planning models, through training sessions and modelling best practice to the school’s teacher educators.

To excel in this role, the post holder will need to build strong relationships with teachers in a range of contexts, adapting their training delivery to different audiences and motivating them to change their practice. They should be flexible, highly organised and detail orientated. They will be a self starter with a flexible approach to work and willingness to do whatever it takes to reach our goals.
