What skills and experience we're looking for

We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic teacher of Ethics to deliver high quality lessons across the key stages from September 2024. If you are an excellent classroom practitioner, who is flexible, dedicated and passionate about delivering exceptional learning experiences, then we want to hear from you.

We require an individual who can help build upon the success of the department and teach a student focused curriculum that allows our pupils to achieve their best possible outcomes. A willingness and enthusiasm to teach other humanities subjects would be an advantage, as part of a flexible and dynamic faculty.

The successful candidate will become part of a progressive team, who are constantly at the heart of developments to promote excellence in the classroom. There is a very decisive shared approach, where everyone feels supported and works as a coherent and highly energised department.

At Key Stage 3, topics taught include Faith in the modern world, Sikhism, Creation, Suffering in the World, Animal Rights, Radical Jesus and, in Year 9 Life after Death, Human Rights, Islam, Buddhism and Holocaust. At GCSE, the department follows the AQA Modules of Christianity and Islam, Thematic, Crime and Punishment, Peace and Conflict, Religion and life, relationships and family.

We welcome applications from high quality practitioners to join Paignton Academy. The successful candidate should have Qualified Teacher status and have an up-to-date knowledge of developments in Ethics. The post would equally suit an Early Careers Teacher or experienced teachers looking for their next challenge.
