  • Location - Flexible, required to work at all academies across the Trust

An exciting opportunity has arisen to join our new team of internal subject/aspect consultants for Co-op Academies Trust. We are looking for an outstanding leader and teacher of reading (including early reading and phonics) with a proven track record of securing improvements in pupils’ outcomes.

This is a crucial role within our School Improvement Strategy and we will continue to expand this team over time.

The successful candidate will need to know the reading curriculum and provision in detail including the Education Inspection Framework expectations and the content of an inspection Reading Deep Dive. Co-op Academies Trust will be committed to developing your leadership skills. You will already be an expert reading leader who currently teaches. You will be able to demonstrate the positive difference you have made to children’s reading both in your own class and across your school.

You would be working with all of our primary academies and their reading/Literacy/phonics leaders on developing the curriculum and provision across the Trust. You will be responsible for raising standards and ensuring all academies have a high quality early reading strategy in place which aligns fully with Ofsted’s expectations. You will do this by working alongside leaders and teachers that work in our Co-op Academies.

This is an interesting and exciting challenge to improve reading outcomes across the Trust.
