We are recruiting – Teaching School Mentally Healthy Schools Project Manager

Are you friendly? Are you motivated …..join the team!

The teaching school has been leading mental health training courses for the last three years and our offer has grown significantly.  The number of localities we are delivering training across has grown and this coupled with the Greater Manchester Mentally Healthy Schools programme means that we have a unique mental health offer as a Teaching School.  Due to the size of the GM project we now have a real need for a Project Manager role.  The GM project has been commissioned by the Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership, teachers have been given mental health first aid training and young people have become mental health champions.  The scheme, which is a collaboration between the Alliance for Learning Teaching SchoolPlace2BeYouth Sport Trust and 42nd Street, has also provided a simpler, easier way to refer into Healthy Young Minds/Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS).

Our work in this area will involve coordinating the support and delivery from many partners and working with at least 125 schools in Greater Manchester.  We are seeking an experienced, highly skilled project manager who is committed to our teaching school values and who will provide outstanding project management and administrative support for this project.

You will be trustworthy and self-motivated with a can do attitude. You will have an ability to prioritise and work within a team.

We are a creative, hardworking team based at Altrincham Grammar School for Girls, part of the Bright Futures Educational Trust.

Temporary contract initially for 12 months.
