Post 16 Progress Leader

37 hours per week, term time + 10 days

The Trustees are seeking to appoint one Post 16 Careers Lead for Excelsior Academy from September 2021. (This is a re-advertised post therefore, previous applicants need not apply).

Excelsior is part of the Laidlaw Schools Trust, created to give children from socially and economically challenged areas the best possible education and start in life. In September 2013, we became Newcastle’s first all-through Academy educating children from age 3 to 19 years old.

The successful candidate will join an ambitious and supportive team, working alongside our existing Post 16 Progress Leader. There will be a key emphasis on supporting student destinations and therefore qualifications in careers advice would be preferable. This role will facilitate the progression routes for all learners, including our higher education students, therefore previous experience of supporting or leading the UCAS process is desirable. You will build upon an already strong strategy for developing a careers programme for the college that meets all eight of the Gatsby benchmarks of good practice and prepares young people for the choices and transitions in education, training and employment. The ideal candidate will be experienced and skilled in working in a post 16 provision along with the ability to work successfully as part of a team.

Laidlaw Schools Trust is a growing multi-academy trust in the North East of England, serving children and families in the west end of Newcastle, Sedgefield and in Pennywell, Sunderland. We pride ourselves in being a progressive, inclusive trust that supports every child to develop their talents whatever they may be and to reach their academic potential. It is important that as a learning organisation we adapt and change to the needs of our pupils. We take care to value and develop all colleagues to make sure they can do their very best for children across the Trust’s schools. Our Academies also enjoy strong support from an experienced LST central team, based in Newcastle upon Tyne.

We are an equal opportunities employer strongly committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people.
