Are you an outstanding Primary teacher or adviser who is passionate about improving children’s outcomes in English?
Do you have experience in leading on English and are looking for the next step in your career development? Can you demonstrate how you have contributed to improved outcomes for children?
If this is you, then come and join the HfL team of Primary English Teaching and Learning Advisers (TLAs) where improving outcomes for children is our most important priority.
Your own learning curve will be steep, but you will be well-supported throughout the journey by a highly skilled team who are at the cutting edge of educational practice. As an English Adviser, you will work alongside teachers and subject leaders to develop and refine subject knowledge and pedagogy. You will enhance your understanding of school effectiveness and will work with a wide range of other professionals. You will also develop and deliver training for teachers, both remotely and face-to-face. Experience of teaching in both KS1 and 2 would be desirable.
You will be self-motivated and flexible, with good IT skills, and be prepared to travel to schools throughout Hertfordshire and beyond. In return, you can expect excellent conditions of employment and exciting professional development opportunities.
The team are working remotely where possible to support their schools and when required, providing onsite support to their schools in line with Government guidelines. Therefore, the ability to reach different locations by car is essential. If you drive, then a full driving licence and appropriate car insurance will be required. As there is a permanent home working element to this role, you will also need to ensure you are equipped for home working.
Benefits: a generous employer pension contribution, 28 days annual leave plus bank holidays (rising to 31 days after five-years) or the equivalent paid for Term Time employees, family-friendly policies, hybrid working, paid mileage, access to mental health and wellbeing support, company performance bonus, professional development opportunities, benefit schemes for discounts and cashback offers, and more.

We are committed towards becoming an anti-racist organisation, and our recruitment statement is set out below in support of this.
HfL is committed to being an equal opportunities employer. We insist on the equal treatment of all current and prospective colleagues and will never condone discrimination on the basis of age, disability, sex, sexual orientation, pregnancy and maternity, race or ethnicity, religion or belief, gender identity, or marriage and civil partnership.
HfL is also equally committed to becoming an anti-racist organisation and we encourage you to view our Anti-racist position statement which gives clarity on our anti-racist stance. In our relentless efforts to be an anti-racist organisation, we recognise the negative impacts of under representation and lack of diversity in our organisation, our education system and in all aspects of our society. Therefore, for recruitment into any HfL post, where we have 2 or more candidates of equal merit, candidates with protected characteristics will be given advantage over candidates without such characteristics. This is sometimes referred to as a ‘tie-breaker’ and is referred to as ‘positive action’ in the Equality Act 2010.
To help us meet our high standards and aspirations of a fully diverse and inclusive workplace, we strongly encourage suitably qualified applicants from all backgrounds to apply and to join us.
Please note that if you are invited to interview, we will expect you to be prepared to discuss unconscious bias with us; we find these conversations more than any others give us all a good idea of what working together will be like.
