TMS plus TLR2 (b) £4,441  Required start: September 2018  

 Do you want to be at the pinnacle of further development in the next stage of an exciting journey at Kingsmead? If so, Kingsmead is the school for you!  Do you want to be part of a forward thinking and successful school?  

Kingsmead School, a partner academy in John Taylor Multi-Academy Trust (JT MAT), is seeking to appoint a talented, enthusiastic and inspirational Subject Leader of Modern Foreign Languages to join a new, dynamic and ever developing department.  

The position is an opportunity for a candidate who is ambitious for their own career progression as well as the achievement of Kingsmead Students.   The successful candidate will have a clear passion for their subject and be able to express this through their teaching.   Alongside a clear vision of how the department can move further forward.   

The aptitude to teach a wide range of abilities from ages 11-18 is necessary. We are looking for someone who can lead French to GCSE and A level with some teaching of Spanish would be desirable, but not essential. Ambition and passion for the subject is crucial. Applications are invited from experienced teachers also.   

An excellent induction programme with contemporary bespoke professional development opportunities will be available for the successful candidate.  

Alongside other subject leaders there will be opportunities to lead developments within the department to achieve student attainment and further increase the profile of Languages within the school.  

The languages department is at an important stage in its growth and development with driving the highest standards further forward. With a recently appointed Assistant Senior Leader to support in the process, our team of teachers will strive to inspire and engage students through using a wide range of pedagogical approaches; enabling them to enjoy the benefits of a creative and innovative learning environment.  

 Kingsmead is at an appealing time of development, alongside the growth in pupil numbers, enrichment activities and improved facilities, enabling us to extend and enhance still further the range of opportunities available for all our young people. It has an encouraging reputation for nurturing and developing confident, well-disciplined and successful individuals who progress successfully to the next stage of their life and career. We relish this next phase in its existence which enables us to review and build on our current success in preparing our young people for a rapidly evolving world. We hope that you will share in this passion.  

Please visit the Kingsmead website for further information and details of how to apply.
