We are looking for an excellent practitioner who has a track record of good and outstanding teaching and excellent outcomes. We are seeking a teacher who is an excellent team member and could be a key player in contributing to the success of MAP; the successful candidate must be able to evidence skills at a high level and demonstrate the ability to use strategies which work toward raising standards.

Plymouth evolved as a city because of the sea, and its future prosperity depends on it. This is why the very first ‘marine’ academy has been opened here. Science, technology, art and sport are all integral to Plymouth and to Marine Academy Plymouth. We are the UK’s first specialist marine academy; a state-funded specialist secondary school with three sponsors (Plymouth University, Cornwall College and Plymouth City Council) who enable us to provide fantastic opportunities for our students. Marine Academy Plymouth is now an all-through school incorporating a nursery, primary school, secondary school and sixth form. Our primary school was recently rated as ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted.

We are looking for a person who has experience in teaching Food and Nutrition, although this post may involve teaching some Design and Technology as well as Art and Design.
