Hours: circa 8.00am to 5.30pm during school term time (with a lunch break)
As a music specialist school, this is a unique opportunity to teach as part of the Orchestra Programme and be part of an outstanding academy, which seeks to redefine what is possible for a school serving an inner-city community.
One of our most ambitious goals is for all of our pupils to become highly accomplished and successful musicians as part of our string orchestra. We believe all pupils, with the right role models, expectations and teaching can learn to love and excel at playing a string instrument. As a key part of the string programme, Music Tutor Fellows provide instrument teaching and tutoring to our pupils from aged 7 to aged 18.
For prospective candidates this role presents a unique offer. You will be part of a ground-breaking project which aims to show that all pupils, irrespective of background, can learn a string instrument to orchestra standard. The role will allow candidates to rapidly develop their small group instruction skills and also be developed as ensemble and whole orchestra teachers through coaching from expert leaders.
The role of Music Tutor Fellow is perfect for someone who enjoys teaching their string instrument and also wants to be part of an orchestra programme rather than teaching isolated instrumental lessons. The role would also appeal to someone who would like to become a music teacher in the future, acting as a springboard and training ground for those who want to learn how to teach and build transformational relationships with pupils. For these candidates, we are able to offer a very clear pathway of progression into the teaching profession. The Ark Schools School Direct training programme provides a clear route for progression. We are growing a pipeline of great teachers who started with us as Tutor Fellows.
KSA is a pioneering school looking to hire exceptional people. In this role you will:
- Become part of a team of like-minded individuals driving forward a unique orchestra programme
- Benefit from weekly coaching on your instrument teaching so that you make rapid progress as a teacher
- Be responsible for ground-breaking educational outcomes for pupils from an economically deprived background
- Have the opportunity to take on additional leadership responsibilities
- Experience a range of development opportunities through being part of the Ark network.
We are looking for an individual with a genuine passion for working at King Solomon Academy, a belief in the potential of every child and that through hard work all pupils can access and benefit from playing in our orchestra. Our school is one which is transformational for staff and pupils alike.
