English Curriculum Team Leader
Leadership Scale 7 - 9
Required for September 2018
The Costello School is looking to appoint highly motivated, dynamic and innovative individuals with a desire to improve the life chances of young people through excellent care, teaching and guidance.
In order to build on our current success we are looking to appoint a Curriculum Team Leader in English. We are looking for a team-player who can lead, contribute to and develop the departmental achievements, someone who can successfully motivate students to achieve their full potential. Applicants should demonstrate excellent interpersonal skills and a passion for developing their subject.
You may be about to gain your first leadership experience or be looking for further experience in another school. No matter what stage of your career you are at you should have the potential to be an outstanding classroom practitioner (if you aren’t already) with a passion for taking risks, trying new things and reflecting on your own practice in order to improve.
Does this sound like you?
We invest heavily in CPD/ training and have fantastic links with other schools and professional organisations, which has led to our induction programme receiving the highest rating from Hampshire. New ideas and approaches are welcomed with open arms and coaching is used to unlock potential. We work very closely with our ‘family’ of partner schools and are currently the strategic lead for a unique teaching and learning project. Due to strong links with local post 16 providers there may be opportunities to experience KS5 teaching. Furthermore, the school’s Governing Body has just voted to join Bohunt Education Trust, which means that opportunities for support, development and progression will be further strengthened in the near future.
