At Ambition School Leadership, we aim to achieve a fair society built on an education system where every child can thrive, regardless of their background.

The Roles

Dear Candidate

At Ambition School Leadership, we are working for a fair society where every child can thrive, no matter what their background. We believe that people hold the key to effecting real change in education – both the talented leaders who join our leadership development programmes, and our close-knit community of ambitious and dedicated staff.

I'm delighted that you're interested in working with Ambition School Leadership - it couldn't be a more exciting, dynamic time to join us. We are a new charity that formed in November 2016 from two education charities, The Future Leaders Trust and Teaching Leaders. We joined forces to increase the impact we can have in schools in challenging contexts and offer leaders at all levels in education a coherent and compelling pathway for career development. Continuing a period of transition, we are growing rapidly and building a positive working culture based on five core values:

  • Mastery: We strive for the best solution and the highest quality, using expert knowledge and evidence.
  • Integrity: Moral purpose, openness and trust are at the centre of our work.
  • Teamwork: Respect and partnership help us to achieve better results.
  • Grit: We approach everything with optimism, passion and resolve.
  • Empowerment: We invest in people, in the belief that they hold the key to effecting real change.

To help us establish this culture and achieve our vision of social justice we are looking for high-calibre and ambitious candidates to join our School Partnerships & System Leadership department. The department develops relationships with schools and federations or trusts, helping their leaders to put together a package of professional development that suits their needs and can most effectively improve outcomes for their pupils.

We have a number of roles that would suit candidates with a diverse range of skills and experience, but all call for people who are committed to their work and passionate about our cause. Are you ready to rise to the challenge?

If so, I really look forward to receiving your application.

James Toop

Best wishes,

James Toop
