If you’re a thoughtful, discerning practitioner who enjoys the creativity of teaching languages whilst also appreciating the intellectual puzzle of second language acquisition then our successful and experienced languages team might be the perfect new home for you. Driven by the desire for students to be successful at a subject that is traditionally seen as being hard, the team have spent the last few years getting to grips with ensuring the right foundations at KS3. This professional curiosity has paid off and languages are a popular choice at GCSE with excellent results (see the department description for more details). 

At Heart of England we realise that our students can only thrive if our teachers thrive and a tired teacher with unnecessary or unproductive bureaucratic activities is unlikely to be that person.  We are trying to create a blueprint for how to make the job manageable and enjoyable, driven by a culture of trust and underpinned by individual integrity.  If you would like to see any of our policies before applying (e.g. our assessment policy) then please do ask. 

If you are reading this advert and feeling that it sounds right for you but that the timing is wrong then please come and visit us anyway. Changing job mid-year might not be your ideal scenario but jobs in MFL at our school do not come along often and so we would encourage you to consider the professional benefits of making an application at this time.  

The suitable candidate will want to contribute to the continuing development of the team and will be expected to teach KS3, GCSE and A level classes.  Attached to this advert is a description that aims to give a flavour of what the experience of teaching at Heart of England would be like.  If you think we sound like the kind of place where you’d enjoy working then please come and visit, call for a chat, click on our website or simply apply. The future you are seeking may well be here.   

Heart of England School is committed to keeping children, young people and vulnerable adults safe.  The post holder is responsible for promoting and supporting a culture of vigilance with regard to safeguarding the welfare of the children, young people and vulnerable adults for whom she/he is responsible or come into contact with.
