Durham Federation is seeking to appoint a forward thinking expert in school based ICT systems in order for our school to move forward with new technology both in and outside of the classroom.

Every element of our school day involves the use of ICT and therefore we are looking for a strategic thinker who can prioritise and organise whilst innovating and developing our systems to maximum effect.

Durham Federation is on an incredibly exciting journey and has been transformed over the last 18 months. We are now ready to move to the next stage of our development plan in order to grow and nurture ambitious, confident and respectful young people with the skills, qualities and moral purpose to achieve great things. The reliability and advancement of our technology is central to this and therefore to be successful in this role you must fully understand the needs of our community and be passionate about making a difference.

You will play a pivotal role in taking Durham Federation further by overseeing the transformation to cloud and handheld technology and providing safe and seamless 24/7 access to our systems and curriculum for all stakeholders.

As well as having a very high level of technical expertise, you must have a clear vision of how to create a flexible and inspirational ICT environment which makes teaching and learning easier, enables learners to develop their independence and empowers creativity.

If you are a creative, solution centred individual who is passionate and informed about the future of technology within education we look forward to reading your application.

Please note that this position is whole time, which means that you will be in attendance at work all year round (52 weeks a year) and will have an annual leave entitlement (26 days if you have less than 5 years’ continuous local government service, 31 days if you have in excess of 5 years’ continuous local government service; pro rata for part time), which must be taken during school closure periods. During periods of school closure outside of your annual leave entitlement, you are required to be in attendance at work.
