Wetherby Kensington is currently looking for a forward-thinking, inspirational and enthusiastic floating teacher to join our team from September 2019 or as soon after as possible.
This is an exciting opportunity for a qualified, imaginative and driven teacher who works with equal efficacy independently and as part of a team. The floating teacher will support our Head of Learning Support and class teachers in the planning and delivery of the boys’ learning across all levels. The role will involve working across all year groups within the school. The floating teacher will take maths and English interventions as well as teaching some topic lessons. The successful candidate will be an inspirational teacher who is patient, hardworking and committed to providing high quality learning.
Experience of teaching in EYFS, Key Stage 1 or 2 is essential as is a thorough up-to-date knowledge and experience of the curriculum. What is also important is your ability to interact and support children in a positive way to foster their enthusiasm for learning and to have the skills and maturity required to take on the teaching duties and responsibilities in a new school. Experience and an interest in special educational needs would be desirable.
