About Ealing Learning Partnership:
Ealing Learning Partnership was developed in 2017 and launched in 2018 to drive greater school to school collaboration and collective responsibility for improvement. ELP leadership | Ealing Grid for Learning (egfl.org.uk)
The partnership’s work is driven by a strategic board comprising eight school leaders and four senior council officers. The board is now looking to appoint a Principal Quality and Partnerships Lead - Learning and Achievement, with a focus on the primary years, to inspire schools and implement the board’s vision for improving learning and achievement for Ealing’s children.
Ealing Council has made a significant investment in the partnership and you will be working with a highly committed centralised team; with board members and with school-based leaders to develop structures for school-to-school collaboration and innovation that make a real difference to pupil outcomes.
What can we offer you?
We are highly ambitious for Ealing’s children and young people. This role offers experienced leaders a unique opportunity to expand their profile as a system-leader in serving the interests of all children and schools in the partnership.
You will be working in a partnership that places high value on school improvement as a continuous journey and a collaborative, collective endeavour.
You will have the opportunity to build on and lead our innovative primary cluster model, working with five serving headteachers “learning cluster leads” to orchestrate peer review models and design collaborative learning.
You will have a clear vision for how to support schools in developing high quality, broad and balanced curriculum models - securing access to high quality resources, subject leadership development and strong networks.
You will be working with dedicated, high quality teams focused on addressing identified challenges arising from the pandemic to help rebuild the resilience of schools and the communities they serve.
