This is an excellent opportunity for an NQT looking to begin their teaching career or an experienced teacher looking for their next role where we offer the opportunity to work as part of a supportive and dedicated department.


The Department
Our Humanities department currently consists of 5 excellent practitioners. We will provide a comprehensive support and mentoring programme for the successful candidate to ensure you excel at your role and are supported in becoming an outstanding teacher.

We deliver an aspirational geography curriculum which aims to broaden students understanding of the natural world around them and how humans interact with it. We want our students to have a strong and balanced understanding of current affairs and global issues and so are constantly developing our curriculum to reflect this. Geography is a very popular subject with increasing option numbers year on year, the position is therefore ideal for someone who is enthusiastic and able to inspire a love of geography.

The School
Manchester Health Academy opened in September 2009 and is sponsored by Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust. In September 2010 the Academy moved into a £20 million state-of-the-art building and to accommodate a growing student population we have recently completed a further £10 million expansion project.

Our vision is to combine education and health in transforming the futures of our young people.
We are on the journey to becoming the provider of choice in a secondary setting and the hub of our local community: we will achieve this ambition. Does this excite you? Do you want to be part of something outstanding?


What we’re looking for
As a member of the Academy teaching staff you will be tasked with delivering an exceptional standard of teaching and learning, which raises aspirations and leads our students to the achievement of the highest academic standards.

This role represents an exciting opportunity to work as a member of a committed and highly innovative team delivering a curriculum where collaboration and team work is essential. We are looking for a highly original and innovative individual, able to make an exceptional contribution to a strong team.

Motivation, commitment and a genuine desire to improve outcomes for our students, allied with a passion for your subject which enthuses both students and teachers alike are all minimum requirements.


Why work for us?
In return we will promise you a stimulating, supportive and rewarding working environment, where all staff are valued and encouraged to take a leading role in the development of the Academy vision and strategy. You will also have the opportunity to access a range of excellent professional opportunities to support your progression.
