We are looking for an experienced, outstanding teacher to work as a lead practitioner for MFL with academies across the Trust. The overall purpose of the role is to provide support to our leaders and teachers to ensure all our academies achieve the same successes.

In this role, you will lead on and drive curriculum development, teacher/leader development and collaboration and enrichment across your subject and in conjunction with your senior lead practitioner.
