Working in Schools
'We want every child in every part of the city to achieve their potential and have the belief, aspiration and support to be their best. The council, schools and other partners will work collaboratively to drive innovation and improvement in order to ensure that every child and young person should go to a good or outstanding school where they have access to the best teaching, benefit from a rich and broad curriculum and prosper in an environment that is safe and promotes their overall well-being.
A Birmingham education is distinctive and we want to build upon that tradition through schools that celebrate and make the most of the diversity and rich cultural heritage of the city as well as continuing to promote an ethos of civic pride and active citizenship with all of our children and young people'.
Birmingham is the largest metropolitan borough, providing a wealth of employment and other opportunities for head teachers, teachers and their families, offering some great lifestyle choices, such as affordable housing, theatres, museums, lively night life, restaurants, bars and lots of culture.
