An outstanding opportunity to take up and develop this new post to lead on the development of effective governance in our Multi Academy Trust.  We have a clear vision to empower schools to bring their strengths and expertise to this collaboration in leading successful learning. We are proud to be a Trust working together to improve learning outcomes for children in the North West Leicestershire area.  This new role is essential in supporting our development and has been created as part of the reshaping of our central services team to improve the support for our existing schools and provide capacity as our Trust grows. 

Candidates should have significant experience of working to support and develop effective governance.  Although direct experience of working in an academy Trust would be beneficial, we recognise that many of the required skills can be acquired in other sectors and we would support the right candidate in developing the sector knowledge to apply them in our Trust.

As a growing MAT we expect the role will develop over time and we are looking for someone who can grow with us through their own development and the development of other staff and services.

Our motto is ‘Excellence Through Partnership’. We strongly believe our collaborative approach ensures staff are part of a family of academies, with the highest educational and operational expertise to ensure the very best education, support and guidance to our students across the group.

We are proud of all of our academies. We actively seek to maintain and develop both individual academy identity and characteristics. 

The successful candidate will have the opportunity to:

  • to work with other local academies and schools
  • become part of a thriving, successful and dedicated Multi-Academy Trust
  • joining the Trust will allow the successful candidate to have access to extensive staff benefits, details of which can be found:
