Grade: L12 – L16
Hours: Full Time with hours necessary for the demands of the role
Responsible to: Director of the Teaching School Hub
Location: London District East Teaching School Hub and Boleyn Trust offices, Tollgate Primary School E13 8SA

The introduction of Teaching School Hubs is a significant, national DfE reform, which is part of the government’s current recruitment and retention strategy for teachers.

We are designated as the Teaching School Hub for all 238 schools in Barking and Dagenham, Havering and Newham. Shaftesbury Primary School, in the Boleyn Trust, is the lead school.

We commit to regular communication with all schools and LAs across the tri-borough area – including secondary, primary, special and AP, whether academies or maintained. Our vision is that the Teaching School Hub is fully inclusive, collaborative and for all schools.

The TSH has five specific initial responsibilities:
▪ Delivery of the Early Career Framework
▪ Delivery of the new National Professional Qualifications
▪ Delivery of Initial Teacher Training (ITT) – which we currently offer via London District East SCITT
▪ Appropriate Body (AB) services for Early Career Teachers (working alongside our three LAs)
▪ Other Continuous Professional Development (CPD)

The successful candidate must be ambitious and be passionate about the importance of the highest quality training and professional development. Experience of successful strategic leadership at a senior level is essential, as is the ability to network and form highly productive, professional relationships with a wide range of stakeholders.

London District East Teaching School Hub is committed to promoting a diverse and inclusive community – a place where we can all be ourselves and succeed on merit. We offer a range of family friendly, inclusive employment policies, staff engagement forums, facilities and services to support staff from different backgrounds.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. This is reflected in our rigorous approach to the recruitment and professional development of staff. The successful applicant will be subject      to an enhanced DBS check.
