Head of Education, Learning and Skills
Up to £89,161
This is an opportunity for a leader with the experience to make an immediate impact on education, driving continuous improvement and raising levels of attainment. You will provide the strategic vision that enables us to deliver a truly integrated approach to learning and education: ensuring that schools, training establishments and other education providers are equipped to give young people the skills that are most valued by employers.
You must hold a relevant professional education and recognised, in-depth service level experience. A proven people manager who can inspire, engage and motivate, you will have the credibility to manage professionally qualified staff and the expertise to shape a vision, articulate objectives and ensure that the function delivers. Commercial acumen and knowledge of financial controls are also essential.
By shaping strategy and driving delivery, you will ensure that our approach to education in South Gloucestershire is connected, coherent and systematic. You will ensure that primary and secondary levels work in tandem, that vulnerable pupils have the right environments in which to thrive and that we maximise opportunities for disadvantaged children. Ultimately, your goal will be to ensure that every step in the education lifecycle is a step in the right direction.
