Are you interested in working in a growing education community?

Maiden Erlegh Trust is developing our subject leadership and requires an expert curriculum leader to champion their subject, Trust wide.

Maiden Erlegh Trust wishes to appoint a Curriculum leader: English and reading. This is a new and exciting opportunity for an experienced Teacher of English to provide strategic leadership of the curriculum intent and implementation for English in the agreed Maiden Erlegh Trust secondary schools. Initially this role will be based at Maiden Erlegh School in Reading. It is envisaged that the scope of the role will eventually extend beyond one school as the Trust grows and develops.

The successful candidate will lead and co-ordinate reading across the curriculum in the agreed secondary schools, including overseeing curriculum programmes (e.g. phonic programmes), interventions and support for students who are not yet fluent readers.

This is a pivotal role in providing advice and support to colleagues, working with them to ensure that their practice is of the highest standard and is consistent across the Trust.

You will be a strong leader with a track record of success in raising standards and/or quality of teaching. You will be experienced in designing and delivering the curriculum to embed best practice, and you will have a commitment to your own professional reading and development. You will also be an excellent classroom practitioner in your own right.

You will need to be an excellent communicator and be able to sustain effective working arrangements with a wide range of senior stakeholders is a prerequisite.

We have a proven track record of supporting ambitious staff and can offer opportunities to broaden your impact on the sector through the work of the Maiden Erlegh Institute. We are very happy to discuss flexible working arrangements, including part-time working and job-sharing.

If you would like to speak to us informally, or to arrange a visit prior to submitting your application, please contact our recruitment team.

Closing date: 9am, 25 April 2022

The Trust reserves the right to interview and appoint before the closing date.
