What skills and experience we're looking for

We are looking to appoint an experienced teacher of Modern Foreign Languages who is looking for a new challenge and is willing to join an innovative and forward-thinking department. The ideal candidate must have a real passion for their subject and be equipped with the skills to maximise outcomes for students at both Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4. Modern Foreign Languages is currently taught three times as fortnight at Kingsway Park High School at Key Stage 3 and by Year 9 offers French and Spanish alongside the option for students to be examined in their home languages. Languages are becoming increasingly popular with our students, and we are looking for someone with the drive and passion to continue to increase the subject popularity through the mapping, sequencing and execution of a new KS3 curriculum model. This is an exciting time to remap the MFL curriculum and to further align the subject curriculum intent with the school’s new mission statement- ‘We Cooperate, We Pioneer, We Belong.’ The new Curriculum leader will also take responsibility for promoting MFL whole school through whole school assemblies, year group activities and possible drop-down days.

The MFL department at Kingsway Park High School is a supportive department that is well resourced with 4 IT suites. There is a work area for staff within the department which allows the team to work cohesively to support and link French and Spanish into the curriculum offer. The new Curriculum Leader of MFL will be supported by an established member of SLT and will work alongside experienced and motivated staff. Finally, this is a really exciting opportunity for someone who is vibrant, passionate and pioneering to really help the MFL department excel.
