Job summary

We are seeking teachers who have a strong passion for their subject and a desire to support all students to succeed. Joining a Science Department at Archway Learning Trust will mean you are working with and supported by an experienced team of strong teachers and leaders.

Besides working with great students, teachers, support staff and parents, the departments within each Academy are great places to work because; each department is supported by a team of experienced technicians who provide their expertise to enable practical activities to take place, data snapshots are only taken twice a year for each year group to inform planning and parents and there is the opportunity for collaborative planning to take place during CPD time. For A Level Sciences, Triple Science and where possible elsewhere, teachers teach their specialist subject. Where this does not happen, you will be supported to teach outside your specialism by experienced teachers.
Alongside the excellent CPD package organised by the Trust, there are many opportunities throughout the year for Subject Specific Professional Development. This is mostly in teams at your local Academy but sometimes there is the opportunity to work with other Science Teachers across the Trust to share and develop ideas.

• The monitoring, assessment, recording and reporting of pupils’ progress;
