After internal promotion, we are looking for an exceptional 2nd in Department in Science to join our team for January 2023.

You will not be expected to attend pointless meetings- our meetings have specific foci, and only happen on a Monday. You will not be routinely expected to handwrite feedback to students. Your lesson observations will not be graded but feedback will help you improve. Your lessons will not be disrupted by poor behaviour, our system will remove students who cannot follow our rules so that you can get on with teaching.

You will receive weekly -1-2-1 coaching in order to make continual improvements within your teaching. This improvement will be aligned to the very latest in educational research and thinking. You will follow Schemes of Learning that are already planned and resourced for you. You will be supported by like-minded colleagues in an atmosphere of respect and creativity. As 2nd in Department you will support the Head Of Subject in leading a large department. You will be embarking on a leadership journey, with relevant CPD and future opportunities to progress professionally.

If you value knowledge, consistency of approach, the very highest academic and behavioural expectations of students and wish to be at the cutting edge of educational development then please apply for the post of 2nd in Department. Subject Specialism essential.
