About Us

The National Institute of Teaching (NIoT) has an unswerving commitment to high quality, evidence-informed teacher education, and is on a mission to improve the quality of teacher and leader development across the system.

The Research & Best Practice Division of the NIoT researches what works best in teacher and leader development.

In addition to being a specialist in evidence syntheses (qualitative and/or quantitative), you will be an innovative and practice-minded researcher who strives to bridge the nexus between research and practice in teacher education.

Key Responsibilities

  • To design and implement evidence synthesis projects related to a wide range of topics on teacher education
  • To liaise with stakeholders in teacher education including academics, schools, teachers, policymakers throughout the process of evidence synthesis
  • To share synthesised evidence with and obtain feedback from practitioners in innovative and teacher-friendly forms

Essential Criteria

  • A master’s degree, preferably in education or a cognate field
  • Experience in designing and conducting qualitative and/or quantitative evidence syntheses on teacher education or a related topic
  • Experience in disseminating research evidence beyond academia
  • Be self-motivated and able to work as a team member
  • Excellent command of written English for academic and publication purposes

Desirable Criteria

  • A doctorate degree or equivalent
  • Experience in working in a range of school contexts
  • Knowledge and skills in graphic design and/or multimedia
  • Publish evidence syntheses in international refereed journals

Key benefits available to all National Institute of Teaching staff:

  • Flexible start and end working times (core hours between 10am and 4pm)
  • Flexible working opportunities
  • At least 27 days’ holiday a year (plus 8 bank holidays)
  • Local Government Pension Scheme
