Telford & Wrekin Council

Director: Education & Skills
Up to £98,000

The Council’s Children’s Services have become the first in the Midlands and the first outside of London to transform services from “requires improvement to be good” to “outstanding. This is not the end of our journey, we will continue to innovate, develop and improve to ensure that children and young people are safe and have the best possible start in life.

We have successfully worked with head teachers and school governors to promote education excellence for all children and young people and we are ambitious in tackling underperformance. Over 90% of our primary schools are judged good or better by Ofsted and we hold the ambition that every child will have a sense of belonging in their school or setting and that there is the right support in place to enable them to succeed.

We will improve their life chances as an adult by building safe and strong communities, access to housing, a strong economy with better jobs and quality apprenticeships. We believe that we can improve peoples prospects through our ambitious plans.

As a Director you will lead dedicated teams, you’ll inspire, influence and drive partnership working with new approaches and innovation to build on these foundations and achieve our plans.

You will have proven experience of strategic and operational management and leadership of a range of education services in a complex and fast changing organisation focused on customers and the community.

As you can see, we will have high expectations of the person we appoint to this post. Still interested? That’s great; we’ll look forward to hearing from you
