What skills and experience we're looking for
Are you looking for your next challenge? Do you relish the chance to work closely with great colleagues to make rapid sustained school improvement? If so, we have the perfect opportunity for you.
The languages department at Beckfoot Oakbank is positive, friendly, and supportive. We plan collaboratively to ensure the teaching and learning is cohesive and to ensure workload is managed fairly. We are influenced by the latest research in language teaching and embed this through department CPD in our planning and delivery.
Currently we teach Spanish in Y7-11 & French in Y11. French will be reintroduced for Y7 in the 2024-2025 academic year.
Languages are thriving at Beckfoot Oakbank, and our GCSE option numbers have more than doubled for September 2023. We will have 4 Y10 groups.
The post would be suitable to a teacher at any stage of their career who is enthusiastic about teaching and passionate about languages.
Our current ECT2 says “I have received excellent mentoring and support during my first two years in this challenging yet really rewarding career, not only within the lovely languages department but also as a member of the wider Beckfoot Trust family"
We are looking for someone who is visionary and ambitious, self-reflective, seeks feedback on their performance and is committed to their own development. Has the ability to motivate and inspire our students to achieve their best. An interest in a Curriculum for All, Inclusion and Vulnerable Learners. Being a team player is essential. A commitment to whole school improvement and a willingness to embrace the Trust’s values, core purpose and collaborative principles.
We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and we expect all staff to share this commitment. All successful staff will be requested to undertake an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service Check.
