Join us at the start of something special in education

Big Education is a charity and multi-academy trust that is bringing together some of the most innovative schools in the city. Big Education has a Big Ambition. To bring together the energy and spirit of our schools, teachers and communities to deliver a bigger and bolder vision of what education can be.

We believe deeply that we need to educate the whole child – head, heart and hand. And if we do that with innovation and rigour, then young people will be equipped to make a difference to the world.

There are three main strands to our work:

  1. Running schools: Big Education is currently running three schools and have had permission from the Department for Education to open another two. The schools that we are currently running are: School 21, Surrey Square and International Academy of Greenwich.
  2. Building an ecosystem: We want to create a series of products and programmes that allow us to take the innovative practice from our schools and share it with others across the country.
  3. Building a movement: We want to build a coalition of people who are united around the idea that the education system needs to be done differently. 

The role

This is an exciting role for someone who is highly organised, meticulous and a self-starter. You will be enthused by the prospect of working in a start-up organisation.

Working with some of the most interesting thinkers in the field, Big Leadership Adventure develops leaders in education who have the skills, commitment and toolkit to shape the system for the future. The programme works with leaders who are committed to changing the story in education.

The Senior Project Officer will be highly organised, have excellent attention to detail and able to manage competing priorities. You will enjoy planning high quality events, with the experience of participants at the forefront of your mind.

You will enjoy working in a fast paced environment, where no day is the same. Having strong initiative, you will work both autonomously and collaboratively in a small team.
