Teacher of Spanish

Required from January 2023

Ivy Education Trust is seeking to appoint a Teacher of Spanish who is an excellent classroom practitioner, deeply committed to improving student outcomes and passionate about teaching and learning to join our growing MFL Department at Newton Abbot College.

The languages department have significantly grown in popularity over the past five years as a result of student engagement and also the college's commitment to all students in KS4 studying a language. Studying a language at GCSE is rapidly becoming the norm at Newton Abbot College with 82% of our year 9 students studying a language and 63% in year 10. As well as an increase in uptake, results in the department continue to improve, with GCSE results significantly higher than national averages for French and Spanish in 2022. This is something that we are very proud of.

We are looking for a classroom practitioner who is inspirational, dedicated and forward-thinking; determined to raise standards across Spanish; creative, enthusiastic and committed to active learning; and an excellent team player.

A teacher who can:

- demonstrate excellent planning and organisational skills

- enthuse and motivate all students

- demonstrate incredibly high expectations

- believe that all students are capable of success

- teach Spanish to A level

If you think you can make a difference to our students and relish the idea of joining our successful, supportive and highly motivated team in the delivery of an excellent languages education, then we want to hear from you!
