Teacher of French job summary

Required from September 2022, a French teacher to teach at GCSE and A Level.

We are seeking to appoint an inspirational and enthusiastic teacher for our highly successful and dedicated MFL department that received excellent feedback following our recent OFSTED inspection in December 2021. We are looking for a candidate who is ambitious, creative and an exceptional classroom practitioner with the ability to teach French to Key Stage 5 and desirably Spanish to Key Stage 3. This opportunity is open to experienced qualified teachers and early career teachers.
As a department, we strive to instil in students our ethos of language learning; to develop the habits of a good linguist, step outside their comfort zone and demonstrate a “have a go” attitude. We are searching for someone who is able to enthuse our students with their knowledge of the cultural aspects of learning a language, and broaden their horizons about the culture of French and Spanish speaking countries.
The successful candidate will work with a team committed to delivering a stimulating curriculum and maximising the potential of all learners through outstanding teaching and learning. Candidates will also benefit from a quality CPD programme and ongoing opportunities for development.
