Purpose of role:

Established in 1850 with a distinctive Catholic identity, St Mary's University has a mission to build upon our reputation for excellence in Education with a comprehensive, high quality offer of CPD, training and standards support for teachers and schools, as well as establishing ourselves as the pre-eminent source of training, advice and support for Catholic schools across the UK. 

Working with colleagues in St Mary’s Institute of Education and the Enterprise and Innovation Department, you will set up and deliver innovative programmes for schools, developing first class leadership skills and standards improvement to schools in both the Catholic and maintained sectors. You will work closely with colleagues in St Mary’s Institute of Education to oversee the design of professional training, courses and research to support the needs of teachers, school leaders, schools, Diocesan education commissions, the Catholic Education Service and others. You will increase engagement with schools, multi-academy trusts and education leaders through designing and delivering a portfolio of activities, including collaborative programmes, Contract Research, Consultancy, Continuing Professional Development and Short Courses, generating income for the University. 

With experience of working in or with schools settings, you will have a solid understanding of teacher training, school structures including MATs, and the Catholic education sector. Alongside excellent strategic thinking and interpersonal skills, you will have experience of developing and delivering training for teachers, and be able to build long term, productive relationships both with colleagues inside the University and with our partners. Experience of working within Higher Education would be an advantage, but it will be more important to have a good understanding of the school system and the direction of education policy generally along with the strategic ability to spot opportunities and the needs of the school sector.
