Job introduction

Co-headteacher of the Central Hub with prime responsibility for the Connected Hub site Central Hub Brighton.  Salary range: Group 1:   L12-18a

Trial co-headship as a one-year secondment or one-year fixed term contract in the first instance

Required for September 2022

 We have an exciting opportunity for an inspirational, creative, and collaborative professional to lead the city’s alternative provision in partnership with a colleague co-headteacher.

The Central Hub came into being as a new organisation in April 2022. It comprises 2 existing alternative provisions, across 3 sites: the LA’s Pupil Referral Unit (for excluded pupils and those unable to sustain their mainstream placement) and the Connected Hub (a provision supported by all Brighton and Hove secondary schools who refer Y11 students who have struggled to achieve their potential in their mainstream school so that they can reengage with their education, successfully complete their GCSEs and move on to the next phase of their life).

For the academic year 2022-2023, the leadership of the Central Hub will be trialled as a co-headship. There will be 2 postholders, each full-time. One of the co-headteachers is already in post. This exciting model of leadership, new to Brighton and Hove at this level, will be evaluated around Easter 2023, so that the longer-term leadership arrangements can be confirmed for September 2023.

The co-headteacher we are seeking will have responsibilities across the Central Hub, and prime responsibility for the Connected Hub, which currently promotes an attachment-aware and trauma-informed approach to education.

Paid weeks per year: 52

  • can lead and inspire a committed staff team
  • have the energy, experience and commitment to help us realise our ambition that this provision that is currently rated as good by OFSTED will soon be recognised as outstanding.

If you think you have the skills, values and experience to be a key player in achieving these requirements, we hope you will apply.

The co-headship is available either on a one-year fixed term contract, or as a secondment. Those candidates seeking a secondment must secure the agreement of their existing headteacher or line manager before applying.
