What skills and experience we're looking for

The Rodillian Academy seeks to appoint an inspiring and ambitious teacher of Science to join our very effective and dedicated team. The successful candidate will have an outstanding teaching ability, the skills to motivate and engage students, and a relentless ambition to enrich the lives and learning experiences of our young people.

What the school offers its staff

Our staff are our most important resource and we provide a supportive framework for them to develop their skills as educators. ‘Teacher freedom’ is one of our core values; we want our staff to develop their pedagogy in a way that fits their own skills and expertise to benefit their students, and we do not have a prescribed format for lessons. Teachers make their own judgments about how to engage their students and how to deliver and embed content. We support our teachers’ professional development with a well-established coaching programme. This allows staff to improve their teaching with an assigned coach who acts as a ‘critical friend’ across the year to assist them in developing an identified area of their practice.

The successful candidate will enjoy access to high quality CPD. You will also be joining a happy Trust where 95% of colleagues agreed that they enjoy working here and 92% would recommend us to a friend or colleague (taken from 2022 staff wellbeing survey).

If you want to work in an environment where you can develop your skills, have the freedom to use your own style and methods of teaching and use an innovative Resilience Curriculum to challenge students to be the most resilient learners that they can be, apply to join us today.

We are an inspiring place to learn, with high aspirations for each of our young people. We aim to secure outstanding examination results for all our young people, providing innovative intervention and mentoring support, to remove any obstacles in their way. Every member of staff is fully committed to working relentlessly to achieve this. Moreover, we motivate our young people, through our academy culture, to aspire to the very best for themselves too. We strive to develop a growth mindset in each of our young people – a belief that intelligence is not fixed or inherited but can be improved if we learn from our mistakes and continually try hard. We are a happy and well run organisation, where students feel confident to strive and develop. It is an academy where engaging, stimulating and appropriate learning takes place so that every student can achieve their true potential. We work closely with home and these partnerships wholeheartedly support the development of our young people into successful and ambitious young adults. That said, we are not complacent and continue to strive to make improvements, big or small, in all facets of academy life, to make our organisation a truly outstanding one. At Rodillian we believe that traditional values of discipline and respect are sacrosanct. We do not tolerate bullying, defiance or rudeness to staff and this has made for a harmonious and safe learning environment for our young people and a supportive environment for staff, where they can concentrate their efforts on teaching and their own continuing professional development. Our school is also committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. Though we may be traditional in our approach to discipline, our curriculum is as modern, innovative and personalised as we can make it.
