‘Standards of teaching are consistently high, and consistently improving because exceptionally well-targeted training helps teachers to learn from and apply, the most effective techniques used by their peers, and those within other schools’ Ofsted 2015
Maltings Academy is a community where inspirational teaching, self-evaluation and self-improvement are evident from the moment you enter our Academy. We welcome all routes into teaching through School Direct, PGCE and we are a host school to Ambition School Leadership, Future Leaders and other pathways.
Our students are diverse, exciting and talented – and the same is true of our staff. We put huge emphasis on professional development, most of it in-house, and are proud of the high number of good and outstanding teachers who work in our school. We are also noted for our ‘can do’ attitude. We are keen, always, to encourage new and/or young staff to make their mark as soon as they are ready.
We are proud to serve the communities around Witham as an 11-18 school where our staff travel not just from Essex but from Suffolk and Hertfordshire. Ofsted judged us as a ‘Outstanding academy’ in 2015.
We are recruiting a Head of Hair & Beauty to join our academy where all colleagues play their part and contribute to whole school improvement through our distributed leadership model. If you embody these values and have high expectations, you will be very successful working with us.
The Hair and Beauty department is well-established within the Academy. The department features a specialist hairdressing salon with nail bars and mobile motorised beauty couches to be brought into the salon when necessary. It also has an interactive whiteboard and ample wall space with specialist learning materials displayed. The department benefits from LSA support available for our SEN students. The department has an extensive range of resources and in-house lesson materials.
If you are driven to lead and develop Hair & Beauty then we want to hear from you! We actively welcome applications from Instructors/Teachers looking for their first leadership position, as well as from experienced colleagues looking to develop their career further.
We are looking for:
- Energy and enthusiasm to deliver lessons that will engage, enthuse and motivate our learners to achieve the best possible outcomes.
- A drive for continuous improvement to help maintain an outstanding department.
- Relevant qualifications and a record of professional development (both formal and through appropriate experience) to meet the challenge of the job specification.
- A genuine commitment to making a positive contribution to the academy.
- A commitment to further developing you as a future leader through access to the school network of our sponsor Academies Enterprise Trust.
- To be part of an academy moving forward at pace.
- A highly committed staff team developing and driving a culture of high expectations and no excuses
We work closely with our sister academy, New Rickstones Academy, also in Witham. Although this role is based at Maltings Academy, all new staff contracts are to work across both academies.
Closing date: Sunday 15 April 2018
Start date: September 2018
