Teacher of MFL
Required for September 2023
Are you an inspirational, dedicated French teacher who is committed to raising student attainment? Do you consistently deliver good to outstanding lessons, track individual pupil progress and make effective use of structured feedback? Are you an intuitive, engaging and adaptable classroom practitioner who sets and keeps high expectations?
We are looking for a dynamic teacher with high expectations and standards who will motivate our students within and also beyond the classroom to learn languages.
You will join our enthusiastic and collaborative MFL department, teaching across Key Stages 3 and 4. All students study French at KS3 and follow AQA GCSE French. The ability to teach German or Spanish to GCSE would be an advantage. The position is suitable for an experienced teacher and a new one to the profession as well.
The MFL department has excellent resources including classrooms each with an interactive whiteboard. We currently use NCELP in Year 7 with a view to implementing it in year 8 and 9. We also use a mix of interactive resources and have access to Chromebooks across the department. We run a trip to Paris in July for our year 8 students thus broadening their horizons.
