Our aim is for everyone in the National Church Institutions (NCIs) to feel that they belong, and are valued for who they are and what they contribute. Together, our people contribute in different ways towards our common purpose, whichever NCI they work in and whatever their background.
The Church of England Foundation for Educational Leadership was set up in 2017 with the mission to ‘develop inspirational leaders who are called, connected, committed to deliver the Church of England vision for education’. Since then, it has operated a wide range of leadership development programmes, networks, research, conference and events, and published a range of key leadership resources to equip school leaders at every level to put their vision into practice.
Part of this provision has been as a very successful national provider of NPQ programmes over the last four years. Beginning in 2017 with the delivery of NPQs for Headteachers, our suite of programmes has now expanded to include programmes for Specialist Teachers, Senior Leaders and also Executive Leaders. More recently, a partnership between the Church of England and the Catholic Education Service is also enabling programmes to be delivered more widely as together our school provision represents around 34% of the sector.
As a Programme Officer, you will support in the delivery of the Church of England’s Education Office’s National Professional Qualification program.
Working as part of a team, the Programme Manager and Programme Officers manage the administration and management of the NPQ work, which is currently undertaken in a variety of portfolios – through directly contracted Delivery Partners, a partnership with TDT and finally through a new National Programme, which will be delivered directly by the Education Office.
Within the team, individual Programme Officers may take different focuses or areas of responsibility in order to ensure the consistent delivery of high quality programmes across the country. Therefore, this role offers the opportunity to develop project management skills over time in a holistic way.
The Church of England is for everyone and we want to reflect the diversity of the community the Church serves across the whole country. Therefore, while of course we welcome all applications from interested and suitably experienced people, we would particularly welcome applicants from UK Minority Ethnic Backgrounds.
To arrange an informal discussion about the role, please contact email@example.com
Closing date for applications will be on Sunday 19th February 2023.
Interviews will be held on Tuesday 28th February 2023.
In return we offer a unique environment with opportunities for continuous learning, generous annual leave for work life balance, season ticket loans and a range of benefits including discounted entry to attractions and what we feel is a market leading package when it comes to our pension scheme.
In the National Church Institutions (NCIs), we support the mission and ministries of the Church of England. We work with parishes, dioceses, schools, chaplaincies and other ministries, and with national and international partners including mission agencies, and other denominations and faith groups.-.
