Required January 2019 (later would be considered)
Would you like to progress your career in a school recently judged by OFSTED as ‘outstanding’, a school where both student achievement and attitudes to learning are amongst the best in the North East? Would you also like to work in a fantastic, newly built school, set in one of County Durham’s most scenic areas? If the answer to each of these questions is ‘yes’ then Sedgefield Community College could be right for you.
We particularly welcome applicants with a strong track record of outstanding teaching and student achievement who, as a Lead Practitioner, could play a significant role in supporting other staff reach a similarly high standard. However, we also welcome applications from teachers with relatively limited experience who may be ready to progress their career by taking on some leadership responsibility within the Science faculty.
If you are a dynamic and successful Science teacher, who has the ability and confidence to work alongside our outstanding Faculty Leader and further drive the quality of Science teaching at Sedgefield, then we would like to hear from you.
Applicants should complete an application form and indicate through a letter (no more than two sides of A4) how their experience to date has prepared them for the role they are applying for (Lead Practitioner or TLR post) and how they would ensure future success. The specific role being applied for should be indicated.
