Director of Learning, Modern Foreign Languages
Must be able to teach French and Spanish to GCSE
We are looking to appoint an ambitious, innovative and outstanding Director of Learning to provide leadership of Modern Foreign Languages within the school. The successful candidate will be able to demonstrate exceptional leadership and management skills and will enjoy working in this small, family-centred non-selective girls’ school that has high aspirations, low average class sizes and great results. He or she will be able to continue to raise standards for all our students in MFL and motivate, inspire and support a strong MFL team.
Languages are well established at DSTC and all girls study a language at KS4. We have a well-equipped, well-resourced department with dedicated language teaching rooms and excellent opportunities for professional development. You will teach our Key Stage 3 students as well as Key Stage 4 where we currently follow the AQA GCSE syllabus.
Dartford Science and Technology College is a Good school where "pupils achieve well and thrive" and "all groups of pupils achieve well" (Ofsted March 2017). We have a clear vision for the future and have set a range of challenging targets. This is a high quality learning community for girls aged 11-18 with a mixed Sixth Form. Our ethos puts learning at the heart of everything we do.
DSTC is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all its staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
