Trust Deputy Director of Science

  • Contract type - Permanent
  • Salary range - Leadership Scale Leadership Scale 12-17
  • Location - West Yorkshire
  • Closing date - March 18, 2022

An exciting opportunity for an outstanding leader and teacher of science with a proven track record to join our internal subject consultant team for Co-op Academies Trust. This is a critical role within our academy improvement strategy and a key appointment for a crucial subject. Already this initiative has been very successful with our current team achieving good progress in key areas; we know this appointment will be equally as positive.

You will need to know the science curriculum in detail including the specifications of a range of exam courses at GCSE. Exam boards vary in each academy, so your subject knowledge and assessment for learning skills will be tested. Within the Co-op Academies Trust, we will help develop your leadership skills. However, we would expect someone who is already an expert science leader and who is currently teaching. 

You will be primarily, but not exclusively, based in our three West Yorkshire secondary academies under the direction of our West Yorkshire Executive Headteacher.  You will work intensively in these three academies and then work with our Director of Science, developing practice across the Trust.  

This is a really interesting and exciting challenge to improve all standards of science across the Trust. This is a unique opportunity to develop curriculum and assessment in a range of academies ensuring science teaching is of the highest quality.

Location: West Yorkshire, with some travel to other Trust academies.  Travel is reimbursed in line with HMRC guidance.
