Job summary

Part Time Teacher / Instructor of Catering (0.6 FTE) required for September 2021.

Compass Learning Centre is looking for a part time (0.6 FTE) Teacher / Instructor of Catering who wants to make a difference to those young people who have struggled in mainstream school. You will be required to teach Catering as a main subject across both Key Stages 3 and 4 delivering ASDAN Short Course, BTEC Home Cooking Skills and NVQ Level 1 and 2.

We are interested in hearing from Catering Teachers / Instructors or Food Technology Teachers who would enjoy working with small classes to embed learning and help students to achieve their best. You should hold a relevant teaching qualification (QTS or TLLS Accredited Qualification Level 4 or 5), have knowledge of subject specific curriculum development and experience of working in the hospitality industry.

The ability to teach across other areas of the curriculum may be an advantage.

We are seeking to appoint someone who:

• is committed to high standards of achievement and progress
• is able to deliver a curriculum in engaging and creative ways
• makes learning exciting, motivating and interesting
• has excellent classroom management and pastoral skills
• is able to contribute fully to the life of the school

If you are a good team player, who is patient, resilient, understanding and have the ability to establish a rapport with young people in a busy and lively setting, this may be the job for you. You will be joining an outstanding, hardworking and friendly team of staff.

As an employee you will be aware of how early childhood experiences will have affected the way in which children have grown and are able to understand the world around them and will be able to empathise and communicate with children in a way they are able to understand and respond to, informed by your understanding of the significance of your own attachment relationships.

The Governing Body would welcome applications from both experienced and newly qualified teachers; the school values the diversity of our work force and welcomes applications from all sections of the community.
