What skills and experience we're looking for

We are seeking to appoint a dynamic, innovative and enthusiastic professional who combines excellent organisational and teaching skills. You should have the ability to inspire and motivate our students. There will be opportunities at KS3, KS4 and KS5. This is the opportunity to work within a strong, supportive and friendly faculty with a track record of excellent external examination results and a collegiate approach to working. Over recent years our Science faculty have delivered some outstanding outcomes nationally. Teaching and learning is at the heart of our collaborative practice. You will have the opportunity to work alongside colleagues committed to delivering a diverse, and challenging curriculum which seeks to ensure the material students learn is current and relevant. You will also have excellent subject knowledge, the ability to teach KS3 and the passion to teach KS4.

A bespoke CPD programme at Heanor Gate means that tailored support is matched to career stage expectations and individuals continually develop their own professional practice in line with personal priorities. For ECT’s a comprehensive package of support and mentoring is offered both at Heanor Gate but also in collaboration with other ECT’s across the trust’s wide range of schools.
