Instrumental and Vocal Teaching Role

Canary Wharf College CrossharbourLondon

Instrumental and Vocal Teaching Role(s)

September/October 2021 or January 2022 start

Approx. 0.5-2 days per week depending on instruments taught

Canary Wharf College Crossharbour is a new and growing school where opportunities to be involved in wider, whole-school development are plentiful. The highly motivated leadership team value shared ideas, initiative and boundless positivity:

“Nobody left behind, nobody held back, everybody loved”

The Role

We are seeking an instrumental/vocal teacher or teachers to contribute to a growing music department. The role would suit someone who has a passion for inspiring young people to make music and who wants to contribute to the development of a vibrant musical culture in a school that is highly supportive of the arts. 

We are ideally looking for someone who can teach more than one instrument of piano, voice, violin and guitar, however, applications are welcomed from those who can teach one of these instruments. The role is part-time and would operate on a self-employed basis. The pay range is from £26-34 per hour based on experience. 

Our School

Canary Wharf College Crossharbour is a new school with the highest ambitions for young people in our community. We opened in 2016 and moved into our new temporary site with purpose-built facilities in September 2018. The school currently has 420 students from Years 7-11 and plans are underway for the building of our new 1200 strong school and sixth form on the Isle of Dogs.

The school is made up of committed and aspirational staff across all levels of the organization, all of whom are fully committed to creating a positive culture that is focused on individual flourishing rather than the narrow metrics of performance that have dominated the last few decades of education in the UK. The school therefore operates around three distinct strands: Intellectual Development, Personal Development and Positive Relationships. Staff development is a key priority and we boast a unique collaborative approach where, through regular sessions, senior leaders support all staff to take ownership for their own development, both by providing high quality guidance and by promoting teachers to read widely, make research-informed decisions, as well as attend tailored internal and external CPD. 

All our subject specialists take pride in sharing their subject passion with our students and thus demonstrating their own ‘love of learning’. Opportunities to develop new initiatives, in or out of the department, are restricted only by imaginations - a cross-trust Carol Service, a whole-school vocal performance from ‘The Greatest Showman’ and a collaborative arts project with a professional trio and filmmaker are just a few recent projects.

Who are we looking for?

We are looking for someone who:

• Is committed to the school ethos and is enthusiastic about joining an expanding school.

• Demonstrates excellent musical ability on own instrument/voice and is keen to inspire students.

• Has experience of delivering 1:1 and small group instrumental and/or vocal teaching.

• Has experience of leading musical ensembles, or has a willingness to learn.

• Has high expectations and a commitment to developing their own teaching practice.

• Wants to support students from a wide variety of backgrounds to excel musically.

Please apply for the position through TES. Please e-mail our HR Advisor, Michelle Richards ( if you have any questions about the role.

Closing date: 21st September 2021 (early applications welcomed and we reserve the right to close applications early if suitable applications are received).

The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff to share this commitment. Successful candidates will be subject to enhanced DBS checks and references.
