Partnership Teacher of English

London Academy of Excellence Tottenham (LAET)Haringey

Partnership Teachers - LAE Tottenham

The team of partnership teachers will work as part of LAE Tottenham’s ground-breaking Chrysalis East project. Chrysalis East exists to support progression to highly-selective universities for students in Tottenham. Working in partnership across a network of local schools, this new programme includes academic enrichment, intervention, university preparation and careers guidance.

We are recruiting for a group of Partnership Teachers to deliver this exciting project, which will launch in January 2021. The role combines subject specialist classroom teaching with a range of outreach and enrichment activities supporting local partner schools.

Our partnership teachers will be based at LAE Tottenham, but will also work with our partner Tottenham secondary schools – Duke’s Aldridge Academy, Gladesmore Community School, Park View School and Woodside High School.

Background

London Academy of Excellence Tottenham is an academically selective 16-19 free school, opened as part of the redevelopment of White Hart Lane in 2017. It is based on the successful model of our sibling school LAE Stratford, named by the Sunday Times as the State Sixth Form of the Year in 2015. Our principal sponsors are Highgate School and Tottenham Hotspur Football Club and the school is also supported by eight other independent schools.

As part of its charitable mission, Highgate School has for many years supported university progression through its highly successful Chrysalis Programme, which works in partnership with 50 schools across London each year. LAE Tottenham is building on this model to launch Chrysalis East, a new hub for the programme in Tottenham.

The Programme

Chrysalis East exists to support progression to highly-selective universities for students in Tottenham. It will focus on three key priorities: 1) Academic intervention and enrichment 2) University preparation and 3) Careers and employability. Partnership Teachers will play a crucial role in delivering the programme, building on the original Chrysalis Programme at Highgate.

The programme activities are varied and flexible depending on the needs of schools and students. Ranging from early years through to sixth form, they include: clubs, enrichment days, masterclasses, mentoring and summer schools. While there is an initial blueprint to work from, we are open minded about working in innovative ways to create something powerful for Tottenham students.

Chrysalis East activities will be delivered in partnership with local schools and other partners such as universities. Activities will be led by a dedicated team of Partnership Teachers, with support from Chrysalis Fellows, who are Year 14 alumni or recent university graduates.
