We are now recruiting for a new post of Curriculum Advisor (Maths). The successful candidate will be the lead professional in this curriculum area across the whole Trust, providing strategic support to subject and senior leaders. The role will focus on curriculum development and innovation in line with the best evidence-based research, our commitment to IB programmes and the Ofsted Framework. You will report directly to a member of the Trust Executive and will be part of a team of ten Curriculum Advisors, each leading on a different curriculum area. You will be based at our Strood Head Office, but will inevitably want to spend a good deal of your time visiting our academies to provide the strategic support necessary to raise standards. 

We are looking for a secondary trained maths expert with superb subject and curriculum knowledge. You will currently be an outstanding Head of Maths or senior leader, such as Assistant Principal. Most of your focus will be across our secondary academies, but opportunities also exist to support our primary curriculum development in the designated subject area. You will be a high-performing professional with a strong commitment to raising standards across the board for young people. This is one of the most exciting job opportunities for career progression and satisfaction in our Trust today. We look forward to appointing a dynamic individual with ideas, skills and dedication to make our maths curriculum even stronger.

The role itself offers superb career development and training opportunities for the successful candidate. Having proven yourself already as an excellent teacher and subject leader, you will be joining one of the UK’s largest and best-established multi-academy trusts with a subject brief across the whole organisation. Others will look to you for advice and expertise; the impact you can have in this post will be highly significant. Key responsibilities will focus on curriculum design, improving the quality of teaching and securing the best outcomes for pupils. We anticipate that most candidates will have aspirations for further career progression beyond the Curriculum Advisor position into senior leadership positions in one of our academies. We are extremely well-placed to assist you in achieving your ambitions based on excellent performance.
