What skills and experience we're looking for

Following the appointment of a new Achievement Leader to the Ebacc Faculty, we are looking to appoint an Assistant Achievement Leader (AAL) of Ebacc, with Geography specialism, to work alongside the two existing AALs from September 2023. This is a role within the leadership structure and will be essential to the development of Ebacc further. The Ebacc Faculty comprises Geography, History, RE and Languages.

The department is exceptionally upbeat, forward-thinking, and innovative and one which is cohesive, team spirited and very well led. We are looking for someone who can play an active role in contributing to the already high standards within the department. Ebacc results are consistently strong. This position would suit an experienced teacher.

What the school offers its staff

The Faculty is made up of an exceptionally upbeat, forward-thinking, and innovative team; which is cohesive, team spirited and very well led. There are 5 teachers within the Languages Team and 12 in Humanities who work collaboratively with planning and curriculum development. The current Achievement Leader has been promoted to the role of Assistant Headteacher and a new Achievement Leader has been recruited for April 2023. He has been developed in the school from a newly qualified teacher to now an Assistant Headteacher showing our culture for developing talent. There are 2 Assistant Achievement Leaders in post who are an integral part of the leadership of Ebacc. They have subject specific responsibilities alongside faculty responsibilities for Teaching and Learning, Intervention, Coaching and supporting our ECTs. This post will have the subject specific responsibility of Geography, alongside the faculty responsibilities listed above.

The vision for Geography is to inspire in students a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. The Curriculum will equip students with knowledge and understanding about diverse places through studying the interactions between human and physical environments and processes. Students complete fieldwork activities throughout KS3 and we also offer a once in a lifetime opportunity to visit Iceland.

As a new member of staff you will be well supported: we have a comprehensive induction process, and you will be given an Induction Mentor and a ‘professional buddy’. For the successful candidate, a commitment to raising standards and a passion for developing young adults is essential: this entails a commitment to all learners, to excellence for all, and a belief that a good school makes a significant difference to learners’ life chances, levels of attainment and the wellbeing of the community as a whole.

Further details about the role

Your application should comprise a completed Hampshire teaching application form, and a letter in which you should outline your experience to date, the reasons for your interest in the post and your suitability for it. Please include a paragraph on your philosophy of Geography teaching and what specialisms you could bring to our #crestwoodfamily.
