SENIOR LEADERSHIP TEAM – ASSISTANT HEADTEACHER
TEACHING & LEARNING
Required January 2020
Leadership Payscale L15 – 19
We are seeking to appoint an inspirational, creative and committed Assistant Headteacher.
The Assistant Headteacher should be prepared to lead on such areas as ethos, systems and procedures. As a member of the senior leadership team, the Assistant Headteacher will also be centrally involved in the overall leadership and management of the academy and will help to establish a school culture that is both nurturing and rigorous.
Keen to challenge young people with opportunities they may not know they even exist yet? We aim to raise students’ aspirations so they begin to believe in themselves and understand that there is nothing holding them back, including where they happen to live or their family’s experience in education.
A forward-thinking 11-18 academy set in a 37-acre site in Birmingham. We aim to provide the very best education to give our students the brightest possible future.
Come and join our team
Quite aside from the opportunity to work with students whose energy, creativity and enthusiasm never fail to inspire, our academy is:
- Committed to teacher development through E-ACT’s professional learning programme in partnership with leading training providers such as Ambition School Leadership
- Leading the way in youth mental health through our very own Mental Health First Aid programme – we aim to train every teacher as a mental health first aider.
- A leader in the education sector for outstanding employee benefits including a generous maternity policy and opportunities for flexible working.
A great place to work and live
The largest British city after London, Birmingham is also home to seven E – A C T academies.
A city of great diversity, culture, history, art and design and with HS2 in development, London will soon be just 49 minutes away.
E-ACT is about improving schools. We do this through a relentless focus on building strong teaching and learning, inspiring curriculums, effective standard operating procedures and embedding a culture based on our values of thinking big, doing the right thing and showing team spirit.
