Opportunities for Senior Leadership roles within ASSET Education

Apply for a headteacher or senior leader post in an ASSET Education school and go through stage one of the process with complete confidentiality.  

Finding the right headteacher to lead a school is one of the most important aspects of our work as a trust.  We only appoint to a headteacher position if a candidate has satisfied us that they have excellent leadership skills, the potential to improve a school and very importantly share our vision, values and ethos.  By getting to know you and your aspirations in stage one of our headteacher recruitment process, we can then consider the best placement for you. If a vacancy exists, or when a vacancy arises, we will consider all candidates who have been successful in stage one and find the best match for the school.  At this point the process will become public, references will be taken up, and you will visit the school, meet the staff, pupils and parents and a final decision can be made.

If you are considering your next challenge, or have aspirations to be a headteacher or other senior leader in the near future, we encourage you to apply!

Do you have skills to bring to the world of education?

Have you thought about volunteering as a School Governor?

ASSET Education is looking to recruit governors to our primary schools.

You will need to have a real interest in the communities that are served by our schools and a desire to see children succeed.  We are particularly looking for people who have a passion for education and learning and also have expertise to bring in one of the following areas:  communications, IT, SEN, Safeguarding, finance, managing people, education or business leadership.

Our Governors report to the Trust Board and provide “support and challenge” to our school leaders. They meet as a group at least once a term to understand how the school is performing and are expected to take an active and involved part in at least one aspect of school life.  For example, a governor with finance expertise would meet with the Headteacher and School Business Manager regularly to support financial decision making and ensure value for money.  Equally a governor with expertise in IT might visit the school on a regular basis to support the development of the computing curriculum.  

At least two places on the governing body of each school are allocated to parents of children in the school.  Skills audits are undertaken annually.  

When a vacancy becomes available it is advertised within the local community, to staff and to parents. Interviews are held and appointments are made on the basis of the skill sets that are needed by the school.  Appointments are made by the Headteacher and CEO with approval from the Trust Board.  

Governors perform the most important voluntary role in education…. If you would like to make a difference to one of our schools and feel you have something to offer please contact Alison Rees ( welcome applications from all members of the community and are particularly looking to widen our diversity.  We undertake full safeguarding checks prior to appointment.   This is a voluntary post, reasonable expenses can be claimed.  

"A single good teacher who cares and shows that they care, who is passionate about children, about learning and about life, can inspire a child and have an influence beyond their own life span."
