Team North West
The link between low income and low academic attainment is greater in the UK than almost any other developed nation. Children eligible for free school meals are less likely to get good GCSEs and go on to higher education. This makes it more likely they will struggle throughout their lives, widening social inequality. It’s a cycle that we’re determined to break.
The Achievement Partner supports, guides and coaches school senior leadership teams throughout the two-year Leading Together programme, based on schools’ contexts. This includes helping teams to understand their school needs, create a robust plan, and implement strategies to make lasting improvements across the whole school. The Achievement Partner acts as an objective pair of eyes for the leadership team – supporting the teams’ visions for their schools while also picking the right moments to constructively challenge.
Do you want to make a real difference to school children in the areas of greatest need? Become an Achievement Partner.
The ideal candidate has substantial experience in senior leadership and successfully working with others to develop and implement improvement strategies. You are an experienced, consultants/current or former headteachers or established vice principal/deputy headteacher with experience of delivering sustained improvement. You have strong relationship building experience and an ability to build credible, trusting relationships with senior stakeholders quickly. You have significant experience of delivering programmes and content to drive senior leader progress, significant experience of coaching, and developing senior colleagues as a group and as individuals.
There will be a two-stage interview process. If your initial application is successful you will be asked to attend an interview on Friday 13th September 2019 in Manchester. The second stage of the process, taking place on Wednesday 18th September 2019 in Manchester.
The day when no child’s future is limited by their background is coming, yet, there is still more to be done. Join us and help us ensure every child in the UK has a fair shot at their ambitions.
