The University of Southampton is one of the top 15 research universities in the UK.

The Head of School will have responsibility for the strategic development of SES and will hold the role for a minimum of three years.
Southampton Education School is a flourishing centre of research and teaching. Based in new purpose-built facilities, SES has a strong range of programmes, including a new BSc in Education Studies, initial teacher education in primary, secondary and post-compulsory education, and a portfolio of Masters, professional development and doctoral programmes. It contributes to Southampton's Doctoral Training Centre (DTC) and is directly involved in the management of the ESRC National Centre for Research Methods in the Social Sciences, hosted by the Faculty. The research culture is fostered through a cross-School Research and Enterprise Group and through the engagement of staff with the large number of research students. Research is currently managed through four Research Centres (Leadership, School Improvement & Effectiveness; Lifelong & Work-Related Learning; Mathematics & Science Education; Social Justice & Inclusive Education). SES is also the base for the Science Learning Centre for the south east of England.
