Why work with us?

We are delighted that you’re interested working with us – it couldn’t be a more exciting time to join. 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

Employee Benefits

Employees of the new organisation formed from the Institute for Teaching and Ambition School Leadership merger are eligible for a number of benefits, including:

  • Agile working – a dynamic and flexible internal culture that gives employees control over the way
    they work and supports wellbeing
  • A competitive annual leave entitlement – 25 days plus bank holidays
  • A generous employer pension contribution – 11% (10% pension plus 1% NI rebate)
  • Competitive salaries rates and life assurance

  • An Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) which gives staff confidential support and personalised information and resources when they are experiencing everyday challenges or more serious problems.
