We are excited to advertise a crucial post at Holyrood Academy, to lead our Personal Development Programme and Careers, across the 11-18 age range.

We are looking for someone who shares our commitment to ensuring that the young people we serve receive the best possible standard of Personal Development and Careers Education.

PDP exists as an important subject in its own right at Holyrood and we believe that students’ experiences in PDP are paramount.  

Our PDP Curriculum is taught by a small team of specialist teachers. It is not a ‘bolt on’ here. Clearly, a key part of Personal Development is the Careers Education our students receive and as such, this role includes significant whole school responsibility as the school’s Careers Leader. An ambitious and exciting programme of CPD will be provided for the successful candidate!

Are you looking to lead with impact across a critical area of whole school responsibility and to support our students to lead safe, happy, enriched and healthy lives? If so, we would love to hear from you.

CLOSING DATE - 9m on Friday 3rd February 2023
