Learning and development in Community Services

Recruitment: Head of Commissioning for Learning in Gloucestershire

Reward Band 5 (to £68,604)

Join us in shaping the future of education in Gloucestershire.

In Gloucestershire, we have focused on supporting the creation of a strong school system with great success. Educational attainment in the county is above the national average. Ofsted judgments rank our schools as among the best in the south west. We are moving forward from a position of strength but there are challenges ahead. We are committed to improving outcomes for children and young people in Gloucestershire, particularly for those who are vulnerable or have additional needs.

We want all our children to learn and grow in an environment that enables them to become confident, resilient and successful young adults that are able to make a positive contribution to their community.

To ensure that our children and young people thrive and reach their full potential and to make sure what we do really works for children and families, we are re-shaping our education service to make better use of our resources and energy. 

How you’ll make a difference…

You will play a pivotal role in our senior leadership team to help shape our plans and lead a change in direction that will enable us to achieve our vision for all children and young people in Gloucestershire.  You will act as a model of excellence for effective communication, to reinforce our strong customer-focus culture.

What we need from you…

You will bring your experience of working collaboratively in multi-agency settings, leading to improved outcomes for children, young people and families. You will have led on changes to services that have achieved efficiencies and improvements. You will have managed budgets and high performing teams and, ideally, you will have worked within a political framework with elected members.

What you’ll get in return…

This is an opportunity to make a lasting difference, not only at an organisational level but more importantly, to the lives of children, young people and their families, at a time of challenging and exciting developments.

What’s next?
