The Anne Frank Trust UK - Director of Education
Salary: £50,000 to £55,000 per annum, depending on experience.
Hours: Full time (37.5 hours per week)
The Anne Frank Trust UK is an education charity that empowers young people with the knowledge, skills and confidence to challenge all forms of prejudice and discrimination.
In the last year, we have delivered our programmes in 90 secondary schools, 53 primary schools, 15 community settings and 10 prisons, reaching a total audience of 54,000 people. Our starting point is always the life and work of Anne Frank, explored as a Jewish experience in the historical context of the Holocaust, and as a source of insight and inspiration for understanding and challenging modern-day prejudice of all kinds.
The Trust aims to announce the new strategy on 12 June 2019, which would have been Anne’s 90th birthday. To lead the strategy into reality, the Trust is recruiting to two positions on the charity’s Senior Management Team: Director of Resources to lead on operational planning and organisational infrastructure, and Director of Education to lead all front-line services. The SMT is rounded out by the CEO and the Director of Development.
The Anne Frank Trust UK has remarkable assets in its talented staff team and board of trustees, in the range and quality of the educational programmes, in its evidence of impact, in its brand and reputation, in the range of its philanthropic and Government funding, and perhaps above all in the power of the tragic story and creative genius of Anne Frank. There are also serious challenges to face in tackling prejudice, and in securing the resources to do so.
The new Director of Education will make the most of these assets and meet these challenges, playing a key role in taking the Trust forward to fulfil Anne’s hope for a world of goodness, beauty and peace for all people.
The successful candidate will have:
• Significant experience of effective management in schools or other structured educational settings, including extensive direct teaching experience.
• Substantial experience of working beyond traditional educational structures, eg. in the community or jointly with non-educational partners.
• A track record of successfully developing new projects or ways of working.
• Demonstrable experience of meeting the needs of disadvantaged or under-represented young people.
• Experience of involving young people or other service users in organisational decision-making.
• Experience of managing substantial budgets.
• Experience of collecting and analysing performance data.
• Highly developed and well-articulated expertise in the theory and practice of education, especially for young people at Key Stages 2 and 3.
• Familiarity with the needs and issues experienced by children, young people and their families and communities, and with relevant regulation and services
• Understanding and ideas about how education can help overcome prejudice and discrimination.
• Awareness of issues and good practice in two or more of the following areas: charities, criminal justice, fundraising, Holocaust education, personal and social education, service user involvement, volunteering
