Fixed term to 31 August 2022, pending permanent appointment
Required for 1 January 2022
From January 2022 we wish to appoint a fixed term Teacher of Modern Foreign Languages who has the ability to teach Spanish to GCSE and French at KS3. This post is fixed term to 31 August 2022, pending a permanent appointment.
We are a comprehensive college of lifelong learners. We are inclusive, kind and committed to the best for our students, supporting them to flourish. We believe passionately in the potential of each young person, regardless of their background or academic starting point.
We have enjoyed positive progress at both GCSE and A-level recently, and are proud of our successful OFSTED inspection. We want to build on this great foundation and make our students’ experiences and outcomes even better in the future.
The MFL faculty at KEVICC is a strong advocate of the college’s inclusive ethos, leading to progress which has been significantly above average for the last three years for students from all prior attainment groups. In our 2019 GCSE results, languages students achieved on average half a grade higher than their prior attainment suggested and A Level results are consistently strong.
Students love learning languages at KEVICC and our MFL team love teaching them. Whether students go onto to study languages at Oxbridge, whether they take a language at GCSE or A Level, or whether they follow a non-language pathway after Year 9, we are committed to giving them the very best experience.
We are also committed as a College to providing great enrichment and experiences for our students, and the MFL team are at the heart of this. We never miss a chance to enrich our students cultural understanding of languages; whether through theatre, cooking, arts activities, or by overseas trips that in the past years have included visits to Paris, Seville and the Basque Country. The College twitter feed @kevicc will give you a glimpse of what we get up to!
As a College we value our colleagues’ professional learning and are part of two vibrant teaching school networks. We learn together frequently and regularly in house and with colleagues from other schools. We celebrate and share great practice, and we always want to find ways to improve. The MFL faculty is especially committed to sharing expertise and resources and ensuring that student learning is of the highest standard.
You will be:
• A highly motivated and conscientious teacher with strong subject knowledge. You will be a reflective, forward-thinking practitioner who embraces research-led practice in-line with the college’s teaching and learning policy.
• Committed to securing the highest standards of work from all of your students, with no exceptions.
• The successful candidate will appreciate the value that a broad range of enrichment activities brings to young people and will willingly contribute to the MFL extra-curricular programme.
• An enthusiastic tutor with a willingness to provide excellent pastoral care and guidance to a mixed-age group.
You will receive:
• The support of a high performing, well-led, friendly and experienced team.
• A well organised curriculum and suite of resources for classroom use.
• Bespoke development of your classroom practice through our high-quality continuous professional learning programme.
This role requires the ability to fulfill all spoken aspects of the role with confidence and fluency in English.
King Edward VI Community College is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. An enhanced DBS check is required for this post.
