What skills and experience we're looking for
Bonjour! Hola! Hello!
You will be an inspirational, innovative and charismatic teacher looking to join a happy, motivated and experienced team of Language specialists.
Your love for the subject will be infectious to our students, and you will make languages accessible and relevant to them. You will have autonomy in your teaching and be provided with an outstanding CPD package for personal development. You will be an aspiring middle leader and either now, or with experience, will become an outstanding practitioner.
As a committed and innovative teacher, you can look forward to teaching KS3 and KS4, with opportunities in KS5 for the right candidate.
You will need to be someone who cares both for our students and for your team. We pride ourselves on the unity of our staff and our departments. The Highcrest family is an important part of academy life. The right candidate will embrace the school’s visions and values to be an integral part of our team.
In addition, you may be interested in building
our Primary Link Co-ordinator role where you will forge and develop links
between Year 5/Year 6 of our feeder primaries and our Year 7 teachers to
improve the provision of STEM and literacy across the KS2/KS3 transition years.
(See full job description attached.)
Are you a team player, passionate about education and social mobility? Do you want to be a pivotal part of improving opportunities for students and increasing their learning and social experiences? Do you want to work in an environment which prioritises staff and student health and well-being? Then please apply now!
