The North East LEP has been chosen by Ford Next Generation Learning and The Edge Foundation as the first area internationally to translate elements of the very successful Academies of Nashville model to the UK. The Academies of Nashville model transformed attendance, attainment and progression by placing employers and business partners alongside teachers and school leaders and developing highly personalised approaches to progression. The North East LEP, working closely with schools in the region, will be translating elements of this model and building an approach that works in the context of this country. The vision is to build a model in the UK that is impactful, scalable and replicable.

As an Industry Alignment Support Officer you will be based within schools 3 days per week – where you will work with curriculum staff and employers to develop engaging and impactful project based approaches to learning. 2 days per week you will work with a Regional Project Lead to develop and share good practice.
