 We are looking for a highly capable, enthusiastic and well qualified French Assistant to help with French classes in small groups. 

The post would ideally suit a fluent French speaker, possibly a French graduate, with a keen interest in youth culture, current affairs, film and literature and a strong feel for grammar.  Previous knowledge of key topics covered at A Level and the AQA syllabus would be advantageous.

Main responsibilities will be planning for one-to-one and pair work sessions with Sixth Form students.  The main aim is to improve the pupils’ fluency, pronunciation, confidence, building vocabulary and inspiring a deeper interest in French and Francophone culture and some assessment support.
