Further details about the role

Would you like more time to build relationships with your students, have smaller teaching groups (a maximum of six students) but still be able to teach students with the potential to achieve high grades at GCSE and A Level? Due to expansion, we have a vacancy for an experienced and enthusiastic humanities teacher

We can offer you the opportunity to focus on a small number of students and transform their experience of education. We understand that there may be some apprehension about teaching in an alternative provision and we would encourage you to watch our video (www.maldenoaks.org) as this will give you an insight into our students, their views, and the difference you could make to them. You would also be supported by a formal induction process and training opportunities.

This post will be based at our KS4 & 6 Oaks (sixth form) site in Ham, primarily teaching GCSE History, Geography and Sociology. However, all our staff work in a flexible way and so there may be the potential to also teach A levels within our newly created post 16 centre and/or to teach additional/alternative subjects.

Despite our small size we are committed to offering a broad and balanced curriculum which currently includes 18 GCSE subjects to allow students a huge choice and develop their interests. As well as engaging in the formal taught curriculum, students are encouraged to develop in other areas through our D of E activity programme. Supporting our students in developing positive relationships, self-confidence, resilience, and creativity is crucial to our ethos and is not measured solely by our academic results but by the views of our past and present students.

Commitment to safeguarding

Malden Oaks is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff to share this commitment. All new staff will be required to undertake an enhanced DBS check and carry out safeguarding training. Please read our full safeguarding policy, which can be downloaded from our website.
