This is a fantastic opportunity to join the forward looking and ambitious leadership team at NUAST.

We are seeking to appoint a dynamic individual with real commitment and drive to join the Senior Leadership team in their tireless pursuit of continual school improvement. Team work and communication are critical to this role; working closely with SLT members, leading middle leaders, teaching and support staff on areas of focus, working with parents and outside agencies etc. Candidates should have a proven track record of raising standards and be able to demonstrate the impact of their current leadership role on school improvement.  Our aim is to move beyond ‘Good’ and develop ‘Great’ provision for our students and this role of Assistant Principal plays a considerable part in this.

The ideal candidate will have the opportunity to significantly contribute to developing the strategic direction of the school, alongside the Principal. We are looking for somebody who has a genuine commitment to students’ well-being and understands fully the difference that care, guidance and support can make to the lives and future of young people.

The successful candidate will take on the strategic leadership of pastoral care, behaviour and attendance at our school and will lead each team effectively to ensure the school vision and standards within these areas become embedded in everyday school life. The post holder will be expected to be the Designated Leader/Officer for Safeguarding, supported by a team of appropriately qualified safeguarding staff.

This job description covers core elements of the post. Specific responsibilities, in addition to those outlined below, will be decided on based on the strengths and experiences of the successful candidate and the requirements of the school. These will be incorporated into the final job description for the post.

As Assistant Principal, you will be required to meet the general requirements of this post, and those of a class teacher, as specified in the School Teachers’ Pay and Conditions Document and Teachers’ Standards. In addition, you will be required to fulfil any reasonable expectations from the Principal. The post will require you to work in partnership with the Principal, governors, staff and students to ensure the continuous improvement and effective operation of the school.
