We are the UK’s first specialist marine academy; a state-funded specialist secondary school with three sponsors (Plymouth University, Cornwall College and Plymouth City Council) who enable us to provide fantastic opportunities for our young people. Marine Academy Plymouth is now an all-through school incorporating a nursery, primary school, secondary school and sixth form, all benefitting from a new state of the art campus. The academy is in a period of transition, exploring exciting partnerships and moving at pace to secure our ambition of ensuring a complete investment in futures for all our young people, starting at the very beginning and flowing through all that we do.
We are seeking an ambitious and committed Lead Practitioner in English for the secondary school, who will be an outstanding individual and a key player in creating the success of MAP. The successful candidate will develop and implement teaching and learning initiatives and strategies to develop the teaching practice of all members of staff and therefore raise student standards and progress. MAP is looking for an aspirational thinker and an inspirational leader who is ambitious and in search of a unique challenge, which will test his or her skills in a nationally important arena.
