My client are embarking on a programme to develop and establish a Borough Schools Group. This is currently in an embryonic state whilst consultation with the relevant stakeholders takes place.
The current political agenda points to the fact that, whilst the need for all schools to convert to academy status is still in the background, the future role and responsibilities of local authorities mean that the status quo is not a viable long-term option. In order to ensure continued coherence in the local schools system, and preserve the partnerships between schools, the borough are pioneering a new approach to a schools led programme
With this in mind we are looking for a Strategic Programme Manager who will work with elected members, the Senior Leadership team, Headteachers, Chairs of Governors and staff to lead this exciting programme.
It is important that the Strategic Project Manager has a background in education, understands governance and is abreast of the current political climate.
This is a high profile programme and will be seen as a new venture across London Local Authorities. As such, the Programme Manager will be familiar with change management and be comfortable liaising with very senior colleagues & professionals, across the council, and with Headteachers and Chairs of Governors in schools. Impact and credibility are essential to this postholder.
