Teachers’ Main Pay Scale/Upper Pay Scale (London fringe)
Are you a dedicated teacher with the ability to inspire students?
Would you like to work in a school that is ranked 5th most popular in Hertfordshire?
Required from January 2019 (earlier start possible) we are looking to appoint an enthusiastic and suitably qualified teacher to teach Food Preparation and Nutrition in our school where we value and deliver excellent professional development. The successful candidate will be capable of inspiring students through their passion for the subject, and have a firm belief in the potential of all students.
Food Preparation and Nutrition is offered to students from KS3 to KS5 and it is a very successful option at GCSE and Level 3 producing consistently good results. We are looking for someone with excellent subject knowledge who is keen to try new ideas in a supportive environment. As a Food Teacher, you will nurture pupils’ creativity and teach them the skills to develop healthy and nutritious recipes. By doing so, you will be teaching a subject that complements their wider learning and brings it to life in practical terms.
Applications are welcome from experienced colleagues who are looking for a change or new teachers who are starting on their career path. For anyone considering returning to teaching you will be fully supported back into the classroom. We offer excellent NQT support including a bespoke programme of training and mentors and there are excellent opportunities for professional development.

We have strong links with local primary schools where good practice and ideas are shared across the Trust. Transport links are good with the M1, M25, A1 and A41 being close by and local bus routes are only a short walk.
