Second in Science

Tes Schools RecruitmentBirmingham

Second in charge of Science.

Tes is currently supporting a friendly and supportive Academy, based in Birmingham. The school is looking to add a second in charge of Science to its progressive and supportive Science Department ideally starting in April 2021.

The role will include coordinating and co-managing the delivery of Science at KS3 and GCSE across year groups 7 to 11. You will support the Head of Science 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.

“‘It takes a whole community to bring up a child’ is not just a motto at the academy, it influences the way we support each other, our parents, students and other stakeholders.

Our teachers are the backbone of this community and are given the room to grow and develop in an encouraging, challenging and rewarding environment. As role-models they exemplify the virtues we strive to instil in our students, which include courage, self-discipline, commitment and honesty.

Become a member of our school family and embrace multiple opportunities for personal and professional development, not just within the school, but from the internationally renowned family of schools we are a part of. As a result, our staff can share best practice and receive training from some of the best educators in the country.

In a typical day, teachers follow a set structure for lessons that students are accustomed to. This allows our teachers to make the most of the lesson time and manage behaviour with a standardised routine. In addition, weekly meetings and reviews provide time for staff to deepen their teaching knowledge and styles while developing strong, resilient and adaptive teams.

Our strapline ‘growing together, reaching higher’ applies as much to our staff as our students. We recognise that the health and wellbeing of our staff will affect that of our students. For this reason, we have invested in developing our wellbeing room and other initiatives to care for our whole school community.”

The school is offering:

• 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;

• the chance to take on further responsibility such as Leadership roles in the future.

The school expects:

• A UK teaching qualification such as PGCE/PGDE, SCITT, BEd or MEd with Qualified Teacher Status (QTS)

• a relevant Science Degree or a related subject

• experience delivering Science up to GCSE pushing and engaging learners to progress within the subject

• experience supporting your existing Head of Department to enhance overall results at departmental level

• a love and passion for education.
