Job description

The Midland Academies Trust has the opportunity to invite a colleague interested in joining a knowledge focused trust to our teaching team by appointing a Teacher of English for The George Eliot School to start September 2020.

You will have heard about The Midland Academies Trust, where we believe that our staff are our greatest resource. Everything we do as a Trust has to fulfil the twin aims of accelerating student progress and reducing staff workload – if it doesn’t achieve both we simply don’t do it

We want it to be easy for our staff to help students achieve well and be prepared for a successful future. That’s why we continually review how we work and actively promote teachers as experts in their classrooms; provide a curriculum which is rich and deep in knowledge and work within a network of schools committed to using and sharing research led practice.

• Our students have clear classroom routines so no time is wasted

• Our faculties plan and work together on shared approaches

• Our five year curriculum is highly ambitious and knowledge-led

• Our staff are valued as professional experts in their field

• Our Trust sets time for collaboration and learning from experts
