The GORSE Academies Trust has an increasingly well-known reputation for changing the deal for children and young adults who come from some of the most impoverished parts of the country. Our central mission is to ensure that we play a significant role in removing the stubborn link between poverty and academic underperformance. Consequently, our students and our professionals are in the vanguard of the national drive which seeks to prove that where teaching is excellent, leadership inspiring and behaviour standards exemplary all children excel regardless of background.

We are seeking to appoint a highly motivated, enthusiastic and hardworking Modern Foreign Languages Assistant to work in our Languages Departments across The GORSE Academies Trust. The appointed colleague must be a native-level speaker of Spanish. Experience of working with young people would be an advantage, although not essential. The successful candidate will work in a range of schools across the Trust with students from KS2 to KS5 assisting the language teacher with whole classes or working with small groups and individuals. 

Your role will be to improve students' confidence in communicating in your language and to help lessons to become more interactive and authentic. You will do this by planning engaging activities and producing resources which enable students to improve their language skills and which immerse them in Spanish society and culture. The successful candidate will support the work of the language departments across the Trust and contribute to raising standards of student attainment.
