Leadership Spine L8-L12: Full time
Required for September 2018

Are you an amazing teacher or leader, looking for a fantastic opportunity to improve outcomes for children across several schools? Do you have a passion for raising standards, together with the skills to coach and mentor colleagues? Our Trustees are seeking to recruit two outstanding teachers to join us in an exciting position supporting teaching and learning across our Multi Academy Trust which covers Sunderland, Northumberland and Newcastle.

WISE Academies is an established, successful Multi Academy Trust based in the North East of England. Our name stands for ‘We Inspire Success and Excellence’ – and we want you to help us live up to our name and growing reputation! The Trust currently includes seven established academies in the region, along with a highly regarded Teaching School. This is an exciting time to join the Trust as it expands into the Blyth area, increasing our family of schools to ten. WISE has a strong commitment to staff development and providing opportunities for talented employees to utilise their skills creatively in the interests of the wider Trust.

Applications are invited from outstanding classroom practitioners who can demonstrate outstanding teaching and outcomes across the primary age range. You must also be able to demonstrate recent, successful change management and leadership influence within your current role.

This is your chance to play an integral part in securing high standards of teaching and learning across the Trust and to develop innovative strategies for the exciting next steps of our growth.

The successful applicant will benefit from significant support from our Head Office team, and from senior leaders across the Trust. A personalised CPD package will be provided to support your transition into the Trust.

Your role

• To lead and inspire colleagues and ensure high quality teaching and learning across the area that they are supporting
• Coaching and mentoring staff to improve performance, ensuring that teaching across the Trust is consistently good
  and outstanding.
• Planning differentiated and relevant CPD for teachers at different levels
• Supporting the Trust in developing the WISE curriculum model of outstanding teaching and learning.
• To work closely with other leaders in the Trust to develop, implement and review policies, practices and action plans
  related to teaching and learning.

This role will require frequent travel between Trust sites. Candidates must therefore be able to demonstrate that they can meet these transport requirements.

For an application form and further information, please contact WISE Academies Head Office, Borodin Avenue, Sunderland SR5 4NX, e-mail recruitment@wiseacademies.co.uk to whom completed applications must be returned.

Closing Date: 12 Noon Friday 4th May 2018
