Teacher of Spanish (with French)

St James is looking to appoint an excellent MFL teacher to join our MFL Department from September/October 2019 either 0.8 FTE or full time.  This will be temporary in the first instance to cover Maternity Leave but we envisage this post becoming permanent.   The successful candidate will be passionate about their subject, fluent in Spanish and able to teach Spanish at KS3 and KS4 and ideally French at KS3. We would, however, also consider Spanish specialists with no French for an exceptional candidate. You will be an experienced classroom practitioner or an exceptional NQT who delivers innovative, engaging and challenging lessons that ensure all students achieve their best.

Our 2018 MFL results were outstanding with 32% of all French GCSE grades being 9-7 (8 grade 9s awarded) and 84% grade 9-4. We enter a large cohort (approx. 75% of all students) for either French or Spanish GCSE and our EBACC results are excellent over a sustained period of time. We are very proud of our outcomes and are committed to building on these in the future. As a result of our high entry rate and excellent outcomes, we are one of only nine schools in England to have been desginated a Department for Education MFL hub. Further details can be found here https://www.gov.uk/government/news/languages-boost-to-deliver-skilled-workforce-for-uks-businesses

This is a truly exciting time to be joining our team and we are looking for exceptional candidates with real ambition for MFL. There may be an opportunity to work with local schools on hub work for the right candidate and moreover we are one of the Lead Schools working on a Common Curriculum Project working with local MATs to improve the curriculum for MFL at KS3 and reduce workload for teachers. This project will give teachers the opportunity to collaborate with a wider network of staff and develop innovative resources collectively, allowing more time for staff to focus on delivery in the classroom.

The Ted Wragg Multi-Academy Trust also provide many CPD opportunities for aspirant middle and senior leaders, there is a robust and popular Leadership Development Programme. Many of our staff complete NPQMLs and NPQSLs and we will be launching a coaching programme in September 2019 meaning you will have access to high quality coaching on a regular basis.

The successful candidate will:

  • Be an outstanding classroom practitioner with a track record of excellent outcomes (or an outstanding NQT)
  • Be a passionate and innovative advocate for MFL
  • Be totally committed to improving the life chances of young people
