What skills and experience we're looking for

Carlton le Willow’s Academy are looking to appoint a Teacher of MFL to join our academy team in September 2024 on a full time temporary basis to cover maternity leave. Part time will also be considered.

YOUR NEW ROLE

We have an exciting teaching opportunity and are looking for an outstanding, committed and motivated teacher to contribute to the development of teaching and learning and curriculum in our MFL department. This is an ideal opportunity for an ambitious ECT or proven classroom practitioner who can display a real passion for developing and inspiring the pupils in their care.

Salary: MPR / UPR (£30,000 to £46,525).

OUR VISION

At Delta Academies Trust we understand the importance of learning a modern foreign language and we believe that every single one of our pupils should have that opportunity. We have invested significant time, expertise, and money in the creation of an outstanding curriculum offer which has increased pupil engagement, and as a result the number of pupils studying MFL in our 17 secondary academies has risen dramatically.

OUR CURRICULUM

We have created carefully sequenced five-year curriculum plans for both French and Spanish using the national curriculum and the key recommendations of the 2016 MFL Pedagogy Review, and we regularly update them. Each one is fully resourced, with detailed lessons prepared for you to adapt to the needs of your classes. We use an online coursebook to underpin our teaching, along with our trust knowledge organisers. Every unit of work includes a cultural topic to help instil a love of languages as well as promote a desire to get to know more about people from those countries. We subscribe to an on-line learning platform to support the learning of vocabulary. Perhaps our biggest and most impressive investment is in our team of modern language assistants. We currently have 17 native speakers in our academies and our pupils love working with them!

HOW WILL WE SUPPORT YOU

Our Senior MFL director is a specialist in both French and Spanish and leads a team of two MFL directors and a lead teacher. They are all based in our academies working to support teachers and pupils on a daily basis. We recognise the value of high quality CPD and the director team run subject specific CPD every half term, meaning that staff from across our trust can meet to share best practice and stay up to date with research findings and national developments. Although our curriculum model is standard across our trust, we are all individuals, and you will have the opportunity to develop as a professional in your own right. We pride ourselves on recognising and developing talent and are passionate about sharing our love of teaching languages.

What the school offers its staff

OUR FUTURE

Our director team are held in high regard and have worked with the DFE and the examination boards in consultation about the existing and new GCSEs. We are passionate about languages in any way, shape or form and have recently had four academies approved to join the DFE Latin Centre of Excellence programme. We are currently preparing a bid to become one of 15 MFL hubs in England which would give us the opportunity to help shape the future of MFL teaching at a national level.
