What skills and experience we're looking for

This is a fantastic opportunity to join one of the UK’s leading comprehensive schools. As a result of the continued expansion of the College, we are looking for a passionate and dedicated Lead Practitioner of Humanities to join our forward-thinking and highly collaborative Humanities faculty, part of a unique, dynamic and innovative village college on the edge of Cambridge. Candidates from across the Humanities disciplines will be considered, but we would particularly welcome applications from teachers of History.

Part time candidates are very welcome, and well supported, as we are one of eight schools in the UK to be a Flexible Working Ambassador School.

Lead Practitioners at IVC play a crucial role in the development of teaching and learning across the College, in addition to the oversight of curriculum, professional development and standards within the faculty. As Lead Practitioner you will be expected to deliver both faculty-based and whole-College CPD, and to join our Leadership Forum which drives the latest developments in teaching and learning within the College. The role would be ideal for a candidate who is an existing Head of Department or Faculty, who is looking to make the next step prior to a senior leadership role.

What the school offers its staff

For the right candidate, we can offer:

  • A reduced teaching load for all staff (maximum 40 hours per fortnight, the equivalent of at least one free period every day) and a generous allocation of time for leadership responsibilities
  • One hour a week of subject CPD timetabled into the College day as part of your timetabled allocation, avoiding weekly twilight sessions and providing maximum time for developing teaching and curriculum
  • A minimum of one paid ‘family day’ per year to use as you choose, with the possibility of term time leave by negotiation, and the chance to work from home by agreement
  • £1000 bursary for personal CPD, including funding for a Masters qualification (or equivalent) and the opportunity to access bespoke leadership training and coaching to support progression into senior leadership
  • A genuine commitment to wellbeing, with a strong track record in supporting positive mental health and high levels of staff retention and promotion (twice awarded the Carnegie Gold Medal)
  • Subsidised access to our on-site Sports Centre and swimming pool, available for use throughout the day, as well as regular staff social events, discounted food and free coffee/tea
