An exciting opportunity has arisen to lead the work of our Teaching School Alliance. This will develop our strategy to provide a range of school improvement services including continuing professional development, initial teacher training, and school-to-school support.

The STAR Teaching School Alliance serves schools in the Sherburn-in-Elmet and Tadcaster region of North Yorkshire. Working as our Alliance Director you will co-ordinate partnership working across all member schools, providing leadership of strategic planning for all our workstreams. This will involve working alongside the TSA Manager and meeting with headteachers, governors and partner organisations to ensure that we achieve the priorities on our agreed plan. Understanding education, and the improvement needs of the sector is important. You will need excellent communication skills and be able to meet agreed deadlines.
