St Matthew’s RC High School is seeking to appoint an outstanding practitioner to join our strong, robust and forward-thinking English department. Working as a Progress and Attainment Coordinator in English, you will be able to quickly ascertain strengths and areas for development for students and classes you teach and ensure rapid progression occurs, as soon as possible, by utilising your own skills as a teacher. In terms of your role as a Progress and Attainment Coordinator, you will assume the leadership of one year group in either KS3 or KS4 and will coordinate all aspects of curriculum management for that specific year group. With the support of the department and our Lead Practitioner for Teaching and Learning in English, you will be an outstanding practitioner and aspiring leader who favours pedagogical innovation and takes meticulous risks, within the classroom, to ensure rapid progress for students. For NQTs, RQTs or more experienced MPS/UPS teachers, you will benefit from a personalised, introductory CPD package from our Associate Assistant Head Teacher to ensure your transition to the school runs smoothly and you feel completely supported in your new role. This is an outstanding opportunity for a candidate to take their first foray into curriculum management and the experiences gained whilst completing this role, would prepare the candidate for departmental leadership.
If you are intrigued by the prospect of the role and would excel within a thriving environment such as St. Matthew’s RC High School, please do not hesitate to contact Mr M Hewitt, Associate Assistant Head Teacher, to discuss the role in more specific detail.
