What skills and experience we're looking for

We are seeking to appoint a well-qualified, enthusiastic and inspiring teacher to join our highly regarded and successful Media and Film department. Our courses at both A level and GCSE follow the Eduqas specification and enjoy a strong track record of success. Our department also delivers the Creative Digital Media BTEC qualification at Level 2, with aspirations to deliver this at Level 3.

Joining us from September 2024, the ideal candidate will have both the commitment and ability to enthuse and motivate our students to ensure excellent progress is made by all. They will be a dynamic teacher who encourages a love for the subject through both their teaching and their involvement in co-curricular offers. The successful candidate should have a genuine passion for the subject, the ability to be an outstanding Teacher of Media Studies and be committed to raising achievement, raising aspirations and going the extra mile. The successful candidate will have access to a state of the art £500,000 Digital Media Centre. The industry standard equipment and contemporary furniture gives the Centre a very professional feel, providing students with the opportunity to learn in a realistic work related environment. The project to develop a Digital Media Centre has only been made possible by the generosity of sponsorship and donations from The Stationers’ Company.

The Centre is resourced to enable students from across all age and ability ranges to produce their own online media content, printed newspapers and magazines. Officially opened in May 2017, the Stationers’ Digital Media Centre has generated a large amount of excitement across the Academy. Students are working on exciting projects, for example, how to become responsible Digital Citizens; identifying ‘fake news’; and, working in collaboration with Ravensbourne University. In 2019 we were delighted to be announced as the winner in the ‘Best Podcast’ category of the Shine School Media Awards.

This is an exciting opportunity to be part of an academy where teachers are supported and encouraged to develop their classroom practice through a wide range of development opportunities.
