Curriculum Leader - MFL

Required September 2017


The Modern Foreign Languages Department at Moor End Academy is a fantastic place to work. Our curriculum is driven by creativity; we believe that students learn best when they enjoy their lessons. The MFL Department at Moor End Academy captures the attention and imagination of our students by teaching the usual in an unusual way. We believe that students should have a purpose to learning and feel that they are doing something real and meaningful, with the aim of developing successful learners, confident individuals and global citizens.

MFL is an integral and crucial part of the curriculum at Moor End Academy. The Curriculum Leader post is vital to the department’s contribution to the English Baccalaureate entitlement we have for our students. Our students begin AQA GCSE in either French or German in Year 9, and there has been increased curriculum time allocated to MFL to ensure success; for example, our Year 9 students have 4 periods of dedicated time per week in order to fully prepare them for GCSE. This is then continued with three lessons per week in Years 10 and 11.

As a member of the Modern Foreign Languages Department, a wealth of opportunities for personal and professional development will be open to you. As Curriculum Leader, you will be expected to take responsibility for leading on key areas of change (such as linear GCSE), as well as opportunities to participate in trips abroad and other extra-curricular MFL activities. You will be part of maintaining current high standards and will provide opportunities for students to extend their love of languages beyond the classroom.

Moor End Academy is a fantastic place to work and the Modern Foreign Languages Department is an important part of this. If you are a vibrant, passionate and innovative linguist who is not afraid to take risks and be challenged, this is a very exciting opportunity and we’d love to hear from you!

Closing date: 9am Monday 27th March 2017

Interview date: Wednesday 29th March 2017

Successful applicants will be required to undertake a Criminal Record Check via the DBS. The Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
