Excelerate is an investment in culture, collaboration, and pedagogy with ambition for system change in education. The Wood Foundation is working in partnership with Aberdeenshire and Aberdeen City Councils to foster community-connected learning approaches.
Through a bespoke package of support, this investment works with secondary school leaders and educators to better engage, inform, empower, and motivate learners. This will be achieved through upskilled teachers with strengthened pedagogy; deeper relationships and activities within and between schools, employers, and the wider community; and more diverse, high-quality learning pathways.
As a key staff member within the Excelerate delivery team, the post holder will work alongside school staff, community, and industry to develop and manage authentic collaborative partnerships which support the delivery of real-world teaching and learning.
An identified member of the Senior Leadership Team within the school will manage the day-to-day delivery of this role, with support from The Wood Foundation.
