Tes Schools RecruitmentCambridgeshire

Second in MFL (French and Spanish).

Tes is currently supporting a friendly and supportive school, based in Cambridgeshire. The school is looking to add a Second in MFL (French and Spanish) to its progressive and supportive MFL Department ideally starting in September 2021.

The role will include coordinating and co-managing the delivery of MFL (French and Spanish) at KS3, GCSE and A-level across year groups 7 to 13. You will support the Head of MFL to enhance provision and will get the chance to get involved with exciting project work throughout the year. Project work will include revising schemes of work and ensuring the curriculum is engaging to all learners alongside projects that support student attainment, well-being and engagement within the wider school. You’ll also lead by example, supporting learners to achieve to the best of their ability and you’ll enjoy that great feeling when your learners achieve grades beyond their dreams.

“We are seeking to appoint an inspirational and highly effective linguist as second in charge in the department, to support the Learning Area by developing pedagogy and fostering a love of languages across the Academy. The specific role will be determined according to the individual strengths of the appointed candidate. However, it will predominantly focus on a strand or particular key stage in order to improve progress and coordinate the work of colleagues.

French and Spanish are taught throughout the 11 - 18 age range and at all levels and ability. We also offer German from year 10 as this is being phased out. KS3 has a varied and engaging curriculum which gives both breadth and depth opportunities. At key stage 4 and 5, we follow the AQA specification. We offer a collaborative department with experienced teachers and exceptional FLAs, keen to bring authenticity to the learning environment.

The successful candidate will be a team player, who will instil a passion for MFL through high quality learning and teaching and have proven success in teaching and learning at Key Stages 3, 4 and possibly 5, ideally in both French and Spanish. The school offers a bespoke CPD programme, research and development, links and networks with other outstanding schools as well as a plethora of extra-curricular and cross-curricular working opportunities.

The school sees the form tutor as a key role in the support, development and welfare of the students and teachers are expected to undertake this role with the same standards and commitment as their subject role.”

• A super supportive and highly visible SLT team and Headteacher;

• on-going CPD with programmes of study such as NPQML and MA in Educational Leadership

• progression support throughout the school and wider group

• support package for NQT’s/RQT’s including CPD and NQT mentorship;
