Education Advisor

The Education Advisors are the lead contact with key members of the Senior Leadership Teams within our customer schools. Through these relationships we provide wide-ranging and in-depth support to teaching and learning in their schools.

Our aim is to add value to the way in which they use our Doddle tool. You will work with them to plan how Doddle can support improvements in teaching and learning throughout their schools and how this plan can be implemented. The roles are field-based with the majority of time spent in a wide variety of different schools nationwide.

Schools want to do the best for every pupil. The more they know about a pupil (strengths, weaknesses and rates of progress) - the more they can find the best way to teach them. Our top-quality products let them do this and are therefore improving teaching, learning and assessment in classrooms across the world.
