Following the highly successful creation of the Director of Teaching & Learning post at Abingdon four years ago, the Headmaster is seeking to appoint up to four assistant DTLs to support and further our work in this area. These new positions will work with cluster groups of departments under the direction of the DTL and will play a major part in advancing our ambitions in this central area of our school.
These roles will be attractive to people looking for an intermediate step between where they are now and a Head of Department position but will also be of interest to current HoDs who want to gain some wider whole-school experience at one of the country’s leading independent schools, perhaps before moving into senior leadership. Thus no specific teaching experience is being looked for in candidates’ experience but the successful candidates will already be excellent teachers in their subjects and have a very evident passion for helping others to improve their teaching.
Contributions to extra-curricular activities are expected from all members of the Common Room and most assume a pastoral role within the school in addition to their teaching duties. The School offers several attractive benefits. Accommodation may be available.
Closing date: Wednesday 24 January 2018 (midday)
Interview date: Wednesday 31 January 2018
