This is a fantastic opportunity to begin or continue your leadership journey in an outstanding school with strong academic results. Little Ilford is a friendly, inclusive and oversubscribed school in Newham making a big difference to the lives of our diverse student community.  In October 2016,  we moved into a brand new state-of-the-art building. We have a strong reputation and high expectations of both students and staff and consider this to be an exciting place to work and develop, where creativity and innovation are nurtured. Our targets for attainment and progress are challenging, but staff have the focus and determination to realise them for the benefit of our students.  We really know our students, and focus on them as individuals.  Pastoral systems are strong and we value a curriculum offer and activities that educate the whole child. 

As a school we are absolutely committed to ensuring that all staff have access to comprehensive professional development and have developed an exciting and impactful programme designed to offer training that makes a real difference.  We value a good home/work balance and do what we can to support our staff in this respect. 

We are looking for a committed, enthusiastic and high calibre leader who has exceptional leadership skills and knowledge in vocational education.  The successful applicant will teach a vocational subject and lead a team of teachers, ensuring that the quality of teaching and learning in Vocational subjects is outstanding, keeping up to date with curricular developments and ensuring that the subjects continue to be successful.  You will engage and inspire our students in the subjects allowing them to make outstanding progress and achieve strong results.

We will support and develop you to become an outstanding leader and provide working partnership opportunities with other schools and departments.  We are an aspirational, reflective and creative learning community where all adults are learners who take risks in order to achieve excellent results for our students. 

We look forward to receiving your application.
