Specialist Leaders of Education – Careers Specific

The Alliance for Learning and Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) are partnering to create the first network of Specialist Leaders for Careers Education of its kind across the region.   

Funded by GMCA and the Careers and Enterprise Company Careers Hub, the new Specialist Leaders will be recruited, trained, and deployed in Greater Manchester schools and colleges. They will work with senior leaders to improve the quality and provision of Careers Education, ensuring that all young people leave school inspired, ready for their life ahead and equipped for work and lifelong learning.

Do you have experience of:

  • advising senior leaders on policy, strategy and resources?
  • preparing and implementing development plans?
  • monitoring teaching and learning in careers education?
  • managing the provision of careers information?
  • liaising with the PSHE Leader and other subject leaders to plan careers education?
  • establishing links with employers?
  • the Gatsby benchmark?


Applications have now closed. We are interviewing on 25/26 November and successful candidates will go through to training on 1st December 2021.
