Education Advisers

UK (home-based with occasional travel)
Salary Details:
26 Apr 2021
About the role

Job type: permanent

Having secured a couple of really exciting projects with the Department for Education in recent weeks – the Early Career Framework and National Professional Qualifications for school leaders - we are looking to expand our UK education team with a number of roles at Education Adviser and Senior Education Adviser levels. 

To join the team, you will ideally be a qualified teacher and perhaps have school leadership, consulting or programme management experience. You will have excellent credentials in the design, delivery and evaluation/quality assurance of professional development programmes for teachers (especially early career teachers) and school leaders. You will understand the evidence which supports this work, but also be able to articulate what this knowledge and know-how looks like in schools and how educators get better at their craft. 

As it’s 2021, you’ll have a good sense of how technology can support this – and perhaps where it doesn’t!

We are also interested in the following specialist expertise:
- People with experience of having run school-based ITT programmes with a particular understanding of the quality frameworks in this area.
- People with experience of monitoring and evaluating professional development programmes for educators, using data – big and small – to determine impact and plan for continuous improvement.

The majority of our work will be supporting school-based delivery partners, so you will have the credibility, humility, coaching and communication skills to support experienced teacher educators in a really wide range of contexts. You will be joining a broader education team who work across a range of programmes supporting teachers and practitioners to improve, from school culture and behaviour to communication in pre-school settings. In addition to programme work, you’ll get the chance to refine our methodologies, develop research and thought leadership publications, represent the organisation externally and work with a brilliant, multidisciplinary UK team who are completely committed to transforming life chances through education. 

In return we offer a competitive salary, a generous holiday allowance, a range of voluntary benefits, health and discount benefits, excellent development opportunities, and family friendly policies to support flexible working. 

Closing date: Monday 26th April.
Interviews will take place early late April / early May.
