Teacher of MFL

  • 2 out of French/German/Spanish (see advert for details)
  • Permanent
  • Full time

If you’re a thoughtful, discerning practitioner who enjoys the creativity of teaching languages whilst also appreciating the intellectual puzzle of second language acquisition then our successful and experienced languages team might be the perfect new home for you.

Driven by the desire for students to be successful at a subject that is traditionally seen as being hard, the team have spent the last few years getting to grips with ensuring the right foundations at KS3. This professional curiosity has paid off and languages are a popular choice at GCSE with excellent results (see the department description for more details).

At Heart of England we realise that our students can only thrive if our teachers thrive and a tired teacher with unnecessary or unproductive bureaucratic activities is unlikely to be that person. We are trying to create a blueprint for how to make the job manageable and enjoyable, driven by a culture of trust and underpinned by individual integrity. If you would like to see any of our policies before applying (e.g. our assessment policy) then please do ask.

The suitable candidate will want to contribute to the continuing development of the team and will be expected to teach German at least to KS3, and French or Spanish to GCSE or A level. Attached to this advert is a description that aims to give a flavour of what the experience of teaching at Heart of England would be like.

We can offer a high quality induction programme with opportunities to observe a variety of colleagues as you hone and develop your teaching practice. Our professional development programme offers all members of staff the opportunity to read and experiment with learning and teaching; if like Oscar Wilde you ‘are not young enough to know everything’, our atmosphere of being restlessly discontent may be right for you.

If you think we sound like the kind of place where you’d enjoy working then please come and visit, call for a chat, click on our website or simply apply. The future you are seeking may well be here.
