What skills and experience we're looking for

A vacancy for a full or part-time teacher of Modern Foreign Languages has arisen at Cardinal Griffin Catholic College. Governors are therefore seeking applications from suitable candidates to join us from 1st September 2023 or an earlier appointment date may be possible.

The Governing Body is seeking a practical and creative individual who is an ambitious and passionate linguist who can teach French and/or Spanish.

We are seeking an ambitious individual who:

  • is an outstanding linguist, absolutely committed to ensuring that students achieve great outcomes and enjoy Languages;
  • is always looking to improve the quality of provision for pupils and is relentless in the pursuit of excellence;
  • is able to develop effective practice through planning, action, reflection and evaluation
  • is agile, flexible and collaborative in their approach to working with others, especially when under pressure;
  • can communicate effectively with staff and pupils;
  • is a resilient and highly committed person.
  • is supportive of our Catholic Ethos;

The College encourages applications from those of the Catholic faith, but it is not a barrier to appointment if candidates do not have that faith background provided they support the ethos of the College. We are extremely proud of our ethos which comes in very large part from our Jesuit Associate School membership and Catholic Diocesan heritage. This teaches us to be grateful for the gift of teaching that we have and to be generous in using it for the good of our pupils.

What the school offers its staff

In return candidates can expect:

  • Supportive and hardworking colleagues committed to going the extra mile for pupils
  • Training, development and support appropriate to their career stage
  • To be part of a College with a strong Catholic ethos and well-behaved pupils
  • Support for both new teachers and those at different career stages is excellent as are opportunities to grow develop and progress

Further details about the role

ECTs who can demonstrate the potential to be outstanding teachers are encouraged to apply.

Closing date for applications is 12 noon, Monday, 30th January 2023.

The College reserves the right to close this post prior to the published deadline should it receive sufficient applications to pull together a good field of candidates. We therefore encourage candidates to submit early applications.

We do not accept applications via CV’s or from recruitment agencies.
