Head of Learning Technology, The Girls' Day School Trust
The Girls’ Day School Trust is the UK’s leading family of girls’ schools, consisting of 23 independent schools and two academies. In all our schools, academic excellence is a given – but we aim to develop character beyond the curriculum. Each of the 25 schools has its own identity and profile, and is supported by a lean and highly experienced central office team in areas where a group-wide approach can add real value to each school.
The Innovation & Learning team at Trust Office exists to support GDST schools and academies in designing and delivering an outstanding education. It seeks to promote creative, collaborative, innovative and effective approaches to teaching and learning. In the context of this role, we have a strong focus on innovative uses of EdTech and its relationship with the various spaces in which learning takes place.
GDST is seeking to appoint a Head of Learning Technology, who will report to the Director of Innovation and Learning and be a key part of the team. At the core of this opportunity is the chance to work with a highly functioning central team at a time when GDST is placing huge value on the role of technology in its current and future educational offering. The Trust is also interested in exploring further ways in which they might innovate beyond the use of technology to ensure that the way in which we educate girls is at the forefront of educational thinking and remains fit for purpose and able to respond to an ever changing educational and societal landscape.
We would welcome applications from candidates who might approach this role in a number of different ways. This is in recognition that there is real potential to shape and mould the role around the particular areas of interest and expertise that the preferred candidate might offer.
