Full time French Teacher to commence in January 2023.
We are looking to appoint an enthusiastic and motivated professional to work in a successful and innovative MFL department held in high regard by students, staff, parents/carers and governors. We would like to appoint a successful classroom practitioner who is passionate about foreign languages, and who is able to teach French to KS3 and KS4. Additional languages offered would be an advantage but not essential.
There is a consistently high level of uptake of MFL at Key Stage 4 at Sir James Smith’s School and both the department and the school are looking to increase the number of students opting for MFL in the future.
The successful candidate will have a clear vision of the role of MFL within the curriculum and how this can be developed in light of the changes to the education and employment landscape. The post holder must be a team player and be able to motivate, enthuse, engage and challenge students. They will demonstrate excellent knowledge of current thinking in MFL pedagogy and practice and be ready to explore and contribute to innovative and adventurous approaches to teaching and learning. The candidate will share in the production and sharing of resource materials for every lesson, so that MFL lessons are adaptable for the needs of each class. The successful applicant will be determined to make a difference to progress and attainment outcomes in MFL and will have evidence to support this.
We look forward to receiving applications from candidates who are willing and able to contribute to the work of our team at a time of great change in MFL teaching and learning.
The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and all staff and volunteers are expected to share this commitment. All our recruitment and selection practices reflect this and successful applicants are subject to DBS checks along with other relevant employment checks.
