The Director of Education role is central to the aims and ambitions of Newham Community Learning, a Trust of two primary and four secondary schools, located close together in the London Borough of Newham. You will make a difference to the standard of education of over 5,000 young people. We serve a diverse community, with significant levels of deprivation, but also with high levels of aspiration. Our goal is simple: to provide a standard of education which is as good as the best that can be found anywhere else in the country.

You will manage a School Improvement Team which will include a Director of Staff Development, a Director of Student Support and a Trust Data Analyst. You will also be able to draw on the expertise of our highly skilled Headteachers and leaders of Teaching and Learning across the Trust. You will work collaboratively with schools, building on their practice, facilitating knowledge sharing and ensuring that school improvement is rigorous at all our schools.

This is a role requiring expertise, energy, determination, organisation, communication skills, and above all a relentless determination for our schools to provide a consistently excellent educational experience for all our students, at every stage of their journey through school.

The Trust’s commitment to equalities is deep-rooted, and we are particularly keen to encourage applications from groups which are under-represented in senior leadership roles in education.

The selection process will take place across Monday 25th and Tuesday 26th March 2024.
