The partnership’s work is driven by a strategic board comprising eight school leaders and four senior council officers. The board is now looking to appoint a Principal Quality and Partnerships Lead - Learning and Achievement, with a focus on the primary years, to inspire schools and implement the board’s vision for improving learning and achievement for Ealing’s children.
Ealing Council has made a significant investment in the partnership and you will be working with a highly committed centralised team; with board members and with school-based providers to develop structures for school-to-school collaboration and innovation that make a real difference to pupil outcomes.
What can we offer you?
We are highly ambitious for Ealing’s children and young people. This role offers experienced leaders a unique opportunity to serve the interests of all children and schools in the partnership and to play a leading role in addressing the impacts of the pandemic.

- Supporting schools in developing consistently high quality, broad and balanced curriculum models - securing access to high quality resources, subject leadership development and strong networks
- Strengthening links with Early Years and with secondary schools to focus activities on addressing identified gaps in learning arising through school closures during the pandemic
There will be a strong team in place to support you and strong backing from members; the ELP Board and Directors. You will have strategic responsibility for ELP resources, a commissioning budget and school improvement grants.
The successful applicant will:
