At the Esland Group, we are excited to be opening a new ‘Satellite Centre’ as part of Oracle School Congleton. As such, we are recruiting for an experienced English Teacher. This role will be based in Rushton Spencer, Macclesfield, on a full time, 39-week, permanent basis.
This is a fantastic opportunity to be a part of the set up, and development, of a new provision for Oracle School, supporting children with SEMH needs. We will expect you to utilise your existing subject skills and knowledge to enhance the vocational pathway courses, contributing to the success of our pupils and changing children's lives for the better.
The role would suit an experienced teacher, who is looking for a new challenge.
We appreciate each of our team member’s experience and skills. We also know these make you unique and this is what will help shape and enrich the lives of the young people we educate. We also believe it is important that our team members share the same values as the wider organisation. At Oracle School, we have a shared vision of emotionally resilient, supportive teachers and leaders who provide accountable yet nurturing direction to each other and the pupils. We are supportive of all members of the team and have high expectations of pupils and each other.
We are looking for an outstanding, committed and motivated qualified teacher to contribute to the development of teaching and learning and curriculum across Key Stages 4 and 5. Pupils will be expected to cover a range of qualification ranging from Entry Level Certificates, through Functional Skills to GCSE. This will be an exciting opportunity for a committed classroom practitioner who can display a real passion for inspiring and challenging the pupils at Oracle School.
Working in a new building is a unique opportunity. A flexible approach with a can-do ethos is essential, as is drive, enthusiasm and sense of humour. If you are adaptable, innovative and child focused then we want to hear from you. We will be looking to recruit a staff team that has a multitude of talents to enable us to provide a rich academic curriculum from the outset and look forward to hearing what additional skills, talents and interests you could bring to this role.
