From September 2018
We require a well-qualified and experienced, Head of Spanish (ideally with either German and/or French) to join our successful and ambitious Modern Foreign Languages department.
Spanish, German and French are all taught to A Level and Oxbridge entrance, and the department is one of the largest in this academically selective school. There are currently five full time members and three part time members of the MFL department, all of whom teach two languages. In addition, there are assistants for both Spanish and French who provide conversation practice in small groups for Year 11 pupils and one to one sessions for Sixth Form students.
The Head of Spanish will liaise with the Assistant Head: Director of Modern Languages and Leader of the Adelante Strategy. The Adelante strategy is unique to Channing and aims to make proficiency in Spanish and an appreciation of the Hispanic cultures a feature of a Channing pupil’s education.
Closing date: Sunday 18 February 2018 at noon
Interviews being held: Friday 23 February 2018
