Dear prospective applicant,
Thank you for expressing an interest in this key vacancy at our college. Our college has been proudly serving its community since 1950 and it continues to be a ‘Good’ school; it was last inspected in May 2019 during which Leadership and Management were judged to be ‘Outstanding’.
We are seeking to appoint a qualified ESOL teacher to deliver English to our parents / carers. This is an important appointment for us as a college as we strive to empower our parents / carers to not only be the best they can be, but to better support their children academically, whilst also engaging positively with our community. Sessions may be delivered during the school day, after school or at weekends at £25 per hour.
Language is a barrier to some of our students and their parents / carer and the successful applicant must be passionate about working with adults as well as being committed to removing this barrier as much as possible. Furthermore, they must be dedicated to the achievement of our mission statement:
“We want every child to be the best they can be, thrive in the best possible career and contribute positively to society.”
This statement is underpinned by our three core aims and values by which we live and work:
Aspiration – Be the best you can be
Commitment – Do what it takes for as long as it takes
Success – Be ready to take on the world
We aim to provide the best educational experience possible for the children in our care regardless of gender, colour, wealth or social status and, for that reason, we are an exciting place in which to work. Your own professional development is something which we will also take very seriously as we value the contributions made by our staff whatever they want to do. Indeed, we have adopted a ‘Workload Charter’ to support colleagues in finding that all-important work/life balance.
If you have a desire to work in a forward-thinking institution with an above average Progress 8 score of 0.25 (putting us in the top 25% of schools nationally) then our college is for you. If you are determined to work in a college where the importance of language and parents / carers are important, then our college is for you.
If this is the case, then I look forward very much to receiving your application in due course.
Mr F Adam
