Digital Education Project Manager
The Schools of King Edward VI in Birmingham (“the Foundation”) is one of the most significant educational charities in this country. King Edward’s School was founded in 1552 by Edward VI and since then it has played a key role in the history of the city. In the late 19th century it created five grammar schools and King Edward VI High School for Girls. Now in the 21st century, The Foundation runs eleven schools – two independent fee-paying schools, six selective academies and three non-selective academies.
The King Edward VI Academy Trust Birmingham (“the Academy Trust”) was established in 2017 and is made up of the nine academies outlined above. The nine academies receive back-office central support services, including finance, from the Foundation Office. The Foundation Office is the Foundation’s central support services function, with several staff being seconded from the Foundation to deliver support services to the Academy Trust and the academies themselves.
A vacancy has arisen in our Foundation Office for an experienced Digital Education Project Manager to join our team on a flexible, part-time basis for 36 months, 21 hours per week.
The successful applicant will manage a bespoke and agile web-based platform aimed at primary school pupils from all backgrounds across the city of Birmingham in order to increase engagement. The project and platform are known as KESTREL (King Edward VI Schools Tutoring Resource and Entrance Learning).
