From September 2018 we are looking to appoint a well-qualified and enthusiastic teacher of History to join a highly successful, friendly and collaborative department. History is a very popular option at both GCSE and A Level and so there would be opportunities to teach across all key stages. We welcome applications from those interested in full time or part-time work. Both experienced and newly qualified teachers are welcome to apply.
Saffron Walden County High School is an exciting and fulfilling place to work. We value our staff and do all that we can to nurture and develop them, seeing staff wellbeing as one of the most important aspects of our successful, dynamic and supportive community.
We seek dedicated colleagues who wish to make a full contribution to the continued development and success of the school, and who are keen to take full advantage of the opportunities provided to develop their own skills and expertise in a highly innovative and enriching learning environment.
As a National Teaching School, we are able to offer exceptional CPD opportunities to staff at all stages of their career. You can expect a wide range of support to help you to achieve your professional goals from coaching and CPD workshops to educational research opportunities. SWCHS is part of the Saffron Academy Trust and there are opportunities to develop your career across our dynamic partnership.
SWCHS has been judged by Ofsted as outstanding and has a national reputation for innovative educational practice. We hold Sportsmark gold and Artsmark platinum and encourage all staff to take part in, and lead, extra-curricular activities.
A recruitment package, including some financial assistance, is available. We operate a childcare voucher scheme and there is an early years nursery on site.
NQTs can expect a reduced timetable with timetabled mentor sessions, regular NQT team meetings and support for an MEd in your second year with us. All RQTs are also offered coaching.
