An education non-profit has been selected by Department for Education (DfE) as the national delivery partner consortium for a new Schools Programme. The consortium is seeking people for 4 part- time roles (approx. 2.5 days per week, mainly term time) as a Schools and Colleges Regional Project Lead.

This is an important role and the successful applicant will act as a key point of contact for the national delivery partner consortium, responsible for the development and progress of each institution's plan for demonstrating adoption and use of education technology to its local or regional group of partner or client schools. The role involves ensuring that each project focuses on the purpose, outcomes and evaluation of this important national programme. Each regional lead will have responsibility for around 5-6 projects

We are looking for a Regional Project Lead who has acquired at least five years proven experience in a senior position in an educational setting with appropriate professional qualifications, perhaps as a teacher or trainer.

You must possess excellent communication and influencing skills with the ability to present to a wide range of audiences, handle press enquiries and requests for information in line with the company communication strategy, and liaise with national and international organisations.
