Subject Leader History
Required May 2017
MPS/UPS + TLR 2
The History Faculty at Moor End Academy is a fantastic place to work!!
Our curriculum is driven by creativity; we believe that students learn best when they enjoy their lessons. All students’ study History as part of our broad curriculum diet in year 7 and 8. At the end of KS3, students choose either History or Geography as part of our English Baccalaureate entitlement. In year 9 History, the focus is on exam building skills and equipping students with the strategies to thrive at GCSE. As a subject and faculty we are working hard to produce engaging, exciting lessons that will give our students the best possible changes for the future. We believe that students should have a purpose to learning and feel that they are doing something real and meaningful, with the aim of developing successful learners, confident individuals and global citizens.
As subject leader for History, a wealth of opportunities for personal and professional development will be open to you. You will be responsible for leading on key areas of change such as the development of questioning skills, Scheme of Work development or how we can further promote Learning outside the Classroom, as well as opportunities to participate in trips abroad and other exciting opportunities and activities. You will drive high standards and will provide opportunities for students to extend their enjoyment for History beyond the classroom.
If you are a vibrant, hardworking, successful and creative individual who is not afraid to take risks, this is a very exciting opportunity and we’d love to hear from you!
