What skills and experience we're looking for

We are seeking to appoint a highly motivated, enthusiastic and inspirational teacher to join the Languages team here at Queen Elizabeth’s High School. The successful candidate will need to be able to teach Spanish from Year 7 beginners all the way up to A Level. Please indicate your preference of part time or full time hours on your application form.

The Modern Foreign Languages Faculty currently comprises a strong, experienced team of seven teaching staff, led by the Head of Faculty, Ms G Turnbull. Additionally, the Faculty employs two native speaker Foreign Language Assistants, one for each language from November to April each academic year.

As we are such a large, friendly, supportive and forward-looking Faculty there is always someone with whom you can discuss issues and develop new ideas. We are particularly interested in any candidates with experience of teaching the NCELP schemes of learning. The majority of our teaching occurs in a specialised set of rooms, all of which are equipped with interactive screens. The department is well resourced with text books, software and other equipment.

What the school offers its staff

The Faculty is well resourced and is accommodated in a suite of classrooms at the heart of Main School. We subscribe to a wide range of online language learning platforms such as Kerboodle, the Languages Gym and Pearson Active Learn, to ensure our learners have access to stimulating and challenging resources for use both in school and for home learning. We actively use Twitter and Instagram to motivate learners. We celebrate our best linguists termly with our ‘Legendary Linguist’ subject awards.

Pupils are also resourced with their own textbook. We use the Claro course for Spanish and Stimmt for KS3 German. At GCSE pupils use the OUP AQA GCSE textbooks for each language at either Foundation or Higher level. At A Level we use a range of resources, and pupils invest in the OUP series of textbooks and grammar workbook, together with a literature/film workbook.

The Faculty most definitely adopts a collegiate, team-working approach, focusing on Teaching and Learning and each colleague has the opportunity to contribute their ideas and develop them. There are regular Faculty and Department meetings in addition to the daily informal contact between colleagues. We are a friendly and hardworking team. All colleagues are committed to sharing good practice and are fully supportive of others.

Commitment to safeguarding

Queen Elizabeth’s High School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
