The King Edward's Consortium

Required from 1 January 2022
ISR L17-L21

The King Edward’s Consortium (KEC) is the no.1 school-centred initial teacher training (SCITT) provider in the country (The Good Teacher Training Guide, 2017). Founded in 2004, we are a well-established group of 22 excellent schools in the Birmingham area. The strength of our partnership lies in its diversity, longevity and experience – a mixture of comprehensive, selective, independent, mixed, single-sex, 11-16 and 11-18 schools.

Our trainees are exceptionally well-qualified and employment rates are very high (100% of trainees from our last cohort entered teaching employment in September 2021). They are highly professional and knowledgeable, generous and passionate – passionate both about their subjects and about the power education has to change lives.

We are seeking to appoint a Director of Initial Teacher Training initially on a fixed five-term contract.  This will enable the new Director not only to lead the Consortium in ensuring outstanding outcomes for our trainees, but also to be part of the partnership’s long-term strategic development once the outcome of the ITT Market Review consultation in England is known.

The KEC is based at King Edward VI Camp Hill School for Girls, Lead School for the Consortium.
