Head of Secondary ITT
L5-L9 (£48,894 to £53,972)

Due to expansion, Exceed Academies Trust is seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and dynamic Head of Secondary ITT to develop its secondary provision in order to meet the needs of its growing partnerships across the sector.

Exceed Academies Trust currently consists of eight primary academies, one all-through academy and a multi-site alternative provision Pupil Referral Unit, with a further 3 schools due to join our family in 2023. In addition, and alongside our Outstanding SCITT, we also have an Institute for Teaching as well as leading the Exceed Teaching School Hub. Exceed ITT has been successfully accredited for 2024, following the ITT Market Review.

Exceed SCITT is an Ofsted Outstanding Provider of Initial Teacher Education and as an accredited Provider can recommend for the Award of Qualified Teacher Status. The appointment of a Head of Secondary ITT reflects the expansion and diversification of our current provision. We have well established provision through School Direct and Provider-led routes in the Primary 3-7 and 5-11 age ranges, including 5-11 SEND. In addition, Exceed Academies Trust is an accredited training provider for the Level 6 Teaching Apprenticeship.

Exceed SCITT works with a growing number of ITT training providers offering unique and innovative programmes to suit all Primary focused trainees, including those with an emerging interest and ambition to work within SEND.  The newly appointed Head of Secondary ITT will initially be based at our training campus at Holybrook Primary School, however the post offers opportunities for flexible working. The location of the campus enables partnership work both in Bradford and our training hub in Leeds.

This post is a unique opportunity for an outstanding and ambitious existing senior leader, experienced within secondary teacher training and development, to lead and deliver the SCITT’s key priorities. The successful candidate would report directly to the Director of Exceed SCITT while working in close collaboration with other secondary leadership colleagues across the organisation.

Our vision and values of Inspire, Excel and Care are at the heart of what we do and we would welcome applications from candidates who can make a significant contribution to our diverse and inclusive organisation and wider partnership of school.
