What skills and experience we're looking for

We seek to appoint a qualified Curriculum Leader of English with experience teaching across key stages 3 and 4 including GCSE. You may come from either a mainstream or specialist/alternative provision but must be confident to deliver high quality teaching and learning within the AP setting. As an experienced Teacher of English and Curriculum Leader working with vulnerable students, you will be able to impact significantly on their personal growth and well-being and go beyond teaching your subjects. This is an exciting and rewarding challenge for a dynamic individual to contribute to teaching across the academy.

The ability to work independently and with initiative is essential, as are the skills required to be a successful team player in a fast-paced environment. A positive outlook, and the ability to work under pressure with an appreciation of confidentiality is very important.
