£200 /Day (Negotiable)
MFT seeks to employ a Coordinator 1-2 days/ week to lead the development of the partnership supported by MFT schools, steering group and other partners.

‘Antrim and Randalstown Schools: Moving Forward Together’ is a multi-sector collaborative education partnership consisting of 20 schools across Nursery, Primary, Special, Post-primary sector, and Rathmore Education Guidance Centre, Community Relations in Schools (CRIS) and other Statutory and Community Stakeholders including Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council, Education Authority, NHSCT.

The partnership was formally established in April 2014 as a response to the growth of interschool sharing within the area spurred by recent experiences of Good/ Community Relations and Shared Education programmes. 

Originally established as a ‘Good Relations’ partnership under a mission of “Promoting good relations between children, young people and the wider community in the Antrim and Randalstown Area” the partnership quickly established itself as a medium for greater interdependence, support and sharing within the area.
