Head of Education
In East Renfrewshire, education is at the forefront of our success. We seek to provide the highest quality education services for children, young people and adults. Our aim is to raise the bar for all and close the poverty related attainment gap.
As Head of Education (Equality and Equity) you’ll support and drive improvements underpinned by our vision of Everyone Attaining, Everyone Achieving through Excellent Experiences.
You will be passionate about securing equality and inclusion, developing prevention and early intervention strategies to ensure we get it right for every child in our schools and centres, driven to ensure we support and involve adults, parents, families and communities in learning and that our young people are prepared to leave school and for the world of work.
You will be an experienced senior manager with a proven track record of high achievement and a commitment to leading-edge practice. You will work with the Director of Education, senior leaders in schools and the department to keep us moving forward and enhance our reputation for continually raising the bar through innovation and creativity.
