Liverpool’s educational landscape is complex, dynamic, exciting and developing fast. Four out of five of our schools are Good or Outstanding, and we’re getting better all the time. We’re innovating our post-16 offer, with a particular focus on children in care, and we have the enthusiastic support of schools, trusts and parents in shaping the new future. But there’s still plenty to do: wider issues of deprivation, the aftermath of the pandemic and the cost of living crisis mean that attendance, attainment, early years, SEND and inclusion all offer huge potential for improvement.

Our Corporate Director for Children’s Services has set a clear, inspiring vision, and this role puts you in the perfect position to develop an education and inclusion service that sets a national benchmark. As part of the directorate management team, you’ll work collaboratively with colleagues to drive change and improvement in an integrated, system-wide way. Candidates are likely to have good current knowledge of the city and region, and your track record of successful educational leadership will give you solid credibility with the organisations and partners you’ll need to influence. Your values-led, inclusive approach, plus a deep personal commitment to the best outcomes for all young people – especially the most vulnerable – will set you apart.
