An exciting opportunity to be part of a strong team in a growing and thriving Academy with a clear vision and ambition for our students.

We are looking to appoint a teacher of Child Development to join our outstanding team of teachers. This post would suit either an experienced or early career teacher.

Child Development (Cambridge National) is a popular course at KS4. It recruits very well as a KS4 option and students achieve well. Many of the students are aiming to move into careers in the caring or childcare sector and are highly motivated in this subject.

In the Sixth Form the Health & Social Care and Child Care BTEC courses are popular and students perform highly.

The successful candidate will need to be reflective, innovative and be willing to continually develop their practice. You will be joining a highly effective team who work collectively to provide exceptional teaching.
