We are currently recruiting for two senior leaders to join our Technology Faculty, a Director of Career Pathways and Director of Curriculum Design. Each year the Faculty helps nearly 2,000 apprentices, further education and higher education students in the Thames Valley to prepare for careers in the digital, engineering, construction and automotive sectors. We work with employers such as BMW, Peter Brett Associates, Skanska and Cisco to develop inspirational learning opportunities for our students.

Their design ideas will be informed by the skills needs of local businesses, the latest evidence-based methods in teaching and learning, and our learning philosophy.

Flexible choice of base location of Oxfordshire or Berkshire, with the need to travel to other locations within our group.
