Our school

Greenwood Academy is a vibrant, successful 11-18 Academy situated in the heart of Castle Vale.  We currently have 840 pupils on roll and are growing every year.  Having moved into our £20 million new build in September, we have world class facilities and students who are keen to learn.   In return you will have the opportunity to work in an innovative and highly supportive Academy.  

As a result of being heavily oversubscribed in Years 7 and 8, we are embarking on the next wave of recruitment for the highest calibre of staff who can help us to grow our school community.

A visit to the school is strongly recommended to discuss the next step in your career. 

PE department and facilities

Our state of the art facilities at our new build allow us to deliver a range of exciting activities both in lessons and extra-curricular time. We are lucky to have a 4 badminton court sports hall, dance studio, MUGA and a field that boasts 4 football pitches in the winter and a full size athletics track in the summer. In addition we also have access to a brand new full size 4G astro. 

What we offer

  • Formal Apprenticeship training towards a Level 3 qualification
  • Work-life-balance – slimmed-down marking, centralised homework policy, no parents evenings and minimal reporting and data entry
  • Tight behaviour systems including SLT led detentions to allow you to focus on teaching
  • World class facilities and technology and a Chromebook for every teacher
  • Private health care through AET 

As part of your Apprenticeship you may also be required to complete Literacy, Numeracy and IT Functional Skills (this will be determined by existing qualifications).  Your Trainer/Assessor will assess you in the workplace every 4 weeks. In between these meetings you will have dedicated time away from your job to work on the apprenticeship and collate evidence for your apprenticeship e-portfolio with ongoing support from your Manager and Trainer/Assessor.

This is an exciting opportunity to be in a real job, with real variety, from day one whilst working towards a qualification.

To be eligible for the Apprenticeship, applicants must have resided in the UK or EEA for 3 years prior to the start of the Apprenticeship. 

Please note: AET has their own in house apprenticeship scheme and do not work with any other training providers to deliver Apprenticeships.

As the sponsor, AET believes that all young people deserve to become world-class learners – to learn, enjoy, succeed and thrive in a first rate educational environment with the best facilities, the best teaching and the most up-to-date resources available to them.  In each of our academies, you will benefit from visionary, inspirational and dynamic leadership and be empowered to develop your own skills with access to world-class CPD and Talent Management programmes.  You will also be entitled to the following benefits: pension, a health cash plan and childcare vouchers.

This will be a fixed term position and the duration of the apprenticeship will be determined by the job role and current skills. The position is due to commence as soon as possible.

Closing date: Saturday 30 June 2018.
