Are you keen to contribute to the leadership of an innovative and exciting school? 

We are seeking an experienced Health and Social Care teacher to lead our specialist pathways in Health and Social Care in our exciting new school.  

There are significant Sixth Form leadership opportunities beyond the specialism available for the right applicant too, but our main concern is to appoint someone who can develop outstanding provision within the pathway. 

Opened by its sponsor academy QES as a free school and part of the Lunesdale Learning Trust, QEStudio specialises in the technical learning needed by the local communities of our beautiful South Lakeland. Our teachers work closely with local employers and professional partners to construct and deliver the curriculum to give our students unique opportunities to put their learning into context. We have over 300 local employers and organisations who support us to deliver our six main specialisms, including Health. 

Our Health and Social Care courses are popular and recruit well at KS4 and 5 whilst our Criminology course is very popular at KS5. The successful applicant would lead and deliver our Health pathways, whilst overseeing the work of colleagues delivering Criminology. This small department of dedicated and experienced staff needs a talented and supportive leader capable of ensuring the highest quality learning experiences for students and working with the leadership of QEStudio to uphold the very distinctive ethos of our extraordinary school. The department will be accommodated in specialist facilities in our brand-new school building when we move into it in September 2019. You would be joining us at a very exciting time. 

Applications are welcomed from well-qualified and highly motivated individuals who are keen to work with remarkable young people providing an exceptional education for all.

If you wish to apply, please complete all sections of the 'Quick Apply' application form by 12 noon on Tuesday 7th May 2019.  In your supporting statement we would like you to include:

• an outline of your relevant experience

• a discussion of the personal and professional qualities which you believe suit you for this post

• a statement as to why this particular job appeals to you

We hope to hold interviews during the week commencing 13th May.

We would encourage potential applicants to read all the Applicant Pack and to browse our websites to get a fuller flavour of life at this very special place.   

You are welcome to come and have a look around and talk to a member of our leadership team too by arrangement.

By all means contact us if you would like to know more : .
