CTC Kingshurst Academy is a highly popular, oversubscribed establishment. We are currently undergoing an exciting and successful transformation in learning and teaching and are actively seeking outstanding and innovative teachers to help shape our journey from good to outstanding.
The academy was last inspected by Ofsted in 2013 and its overall effectiveness was judged as “Good” and improving. With 85% of observed lessons found to be good or better, the inspectors reported that ‘teachers expect much of their students and communicate great enthusiasm for their subjects. Students have great respect for, and confidence in, their teachers and this supports students’ learning well’, Ofsted, 2013.
The faculty, which includes a mix of experienced and newly qualified teachers, offers a range of languages, which include French, Spanish, German, with Russian and Japanese being taught at KS5. In a recent external mock Ofsted review teaching across the faculty is showing improved outcomes for students and majority of teaching was judged good or outstanding.
We are looking to appoint an innovative Spanish language teacher able to deliver an outstanding curriculum from key stage three through to the International Baccalaureate at key stage five. The ability to teach French at KS3 would be desirable. Candidates must have evidence of securing strong progress outcomes and consistent high attainment with their examination groups. The applicant must be confident, an excellent communicator and able to drive their own professional development. We are looking for a dedicated individual with ideas on how to foster cross-subject links, extend attainment and progress and build further on the positive reputation of ML held by students at the academy. Successful candidates will drive student engagement and be able to co-ordinate and implement effective strategies that ensure rapid and sustained progress for all learners.
Part time position/job share will also be considered.
NQTs and experienced teachers are welcome to apply.
