Clerk to BCAT Trust and BCGS LGB
Barton Court Academy Trust (BCAT) is a multi-academy Trust which was established in 2017.
It currently consists of two secondary schools: Barton Court Grammar School, an 11-18 years, mixed selective school in the heart of Canterbury, rated “Good” with many outstanding features by Ofsted in February 2020, and The Charles Dickens School, an 11-16 years mixed non-selective school in Broadstairs, which came out of special measures and is rated “Requires Improvement” by Ofsted in June 2019 and is a rapidly improving school. The Trust is also opening Barton Manor Free School, an 11 – 18 years non-selective mixed school in the heart of Canterbury on the former Chaucer School site in September 2022 to Year 7.
We require an experienced and well-qualified Clerk for both BCAT Trustees and BCGS Local Governing Body to work with already established Boards and to provide additional clerking capacity to the Free School, Barton Manor School, when this opens in September 2022. You should be experienced and well-qualified at clerking a Multi-Academy Trust, but the Trust will provide training and support for Level 3 training and accreditation in Certificate in Clerking Schools & Academy Boards if this is not yet achieved.
This is a zero hours contract so flexibility with working hours is required although we anticipate approximately 20 hours per week/38 weeks per year, mainly, but not exclusively in term time.
A handover period with the existing Clerk, who will remain in place at The Charles Dickens School, will be available.
Candidates must have their own transport.
A well-qualified and experienced Clerk with Level 3 accreditation will receive BCAT pay scale 8 (£25,692 - £29,299 pro rata); a Clerk with less experience and without a Level 3 qualification will receive BCAT pay scale 7 (£22,581 - £25,564 pro rata) and will be expected to commit to Level 3 training.
Deadline - Monday 8 February 2021@ 9am - Early applications are encouraged and will be considered before the deadline.
