Casual basis - as and when required

Maltings Academy and New Rickstones Academy in Witham, Essex are graded ‘Outstanding’ and ‘Good’ by Ofsted respectively. Both have a state of the art new building offering fantastic facilities for both students and staff.  

We are recruiting a number of Associate Teachers to join our Cover team. You will provide cover for classes in the event of absence of teaching staff in all areas of the curriculum, following lesson plans provided and maintaining good order and focused activity.  Training will be provided.

The successful candidates will be educated to Level 3 (minimum), have excellent communication and interpersonal skills and be able to motivate our learners.  You will be able to adapt quickly to changing situations and ‘think on your feet’. These positions are on a casual basis across both academies, with working hours between 8.30am and 3pm. 

This is a flexible role that provides full training and the opportunity to join a friendly and supportive team. It also offers an excellent opportunity to gain experience if you are looking to develop a career in teaching - a number of our Associate Teachers have gone on to join our School Direct Teacher Training Programme and then secured teaching positions within our academies.

Potential candidates are encouraged to contact Paula Maxted, Cover Manager for an informal discussion about the post and also to visit the academy - / 01376 512 911 x1316.

This position is required to commence as soon as possible.  Interviews are scheduled to take place Tuesday 10 July 2018.
