The employer is an innovative charity which operates across the UK working with 50,000 young people, employing 700 staff and turning over £85m next year.

The employer is looking for someone passionate about high quality delivery, who would relish a challenge, is values led with their approach and has a proven, excellent track record of managing and leading teams to deliver outstanding teaching practice and outcomes, with robust knowledge of work-based teaching and learning.
