Date posted:
Start date: 1st September
Contract type: Full Time
Salary: Competitive
Contract term: Permanent

We are looking for a highly driven, passionate and active English Teacher who can model exceptional teaching practice and engage students to achieve beyond their potential.

As a new college, we are still expanding and developing our curriculum. We currently have around 400 students on our role and expect to be at full capacity (600) by 2019/20.

This is a great opportunity for a proactive and inspiring teacher who can help drive forward the education of English Literature and Language at our innovative college. We welcome and encourage prospective candidates to come and see us and get a feel for our college.

This is a brilliant place to innovate, make and learn. Elstree University Technical College opened in September 2013 and offers a unique education for students aged 14 to 19 specialising in behind the scenes multimedia production, digital technologies and the entertainments industry. We provide core academic education alongside technical, vocational learning designed to develop learners to be creative, innovative and reflective. We are also here to provide them with the necessary knowledge, skills and opportunities to be employed in the media industries where there is currently a substantial skills shortage. 

This is a creative college full of vitality and enthusiasm. Our students are a credit to us and our campus is new and well resourced. Our staff are passionate and industry credible. EUTC benefits from leading academic and industry partners and aims to be a centre of excellence and the national leader specialising in education for the entertainment, film, television, theatre, visual arts and digital communication industries. 

We reserve the right to bring forward the closing date should we receive suitable applications.

We offer:

  • Peninsula HR advice and support
       Our HR department is external so you can rely on absolute accessibility, equality and privacy when seeking support for both personal and professional concerns. In addition, we use the HR Online portal to manage staff leave - where you can easily view remaining holiday and book time off.
     
  • Complimentary access to the Elstree Studios bar 'Rushes'
     
  • Access to high end professional equipment and facilities
       Book out the studio spaces (recording studio and drama stage) when coursework, exams or students aren't occupying them. Loan Canon DSLR equipment and small lighting kits.
     
  • Stay healthy and use our Fitness Room, Dance Studio, Gym and Yoga equipment
     
  • Smaller class sizes at GCSE
     
  • Contact hours (less than mainstream schools)
       You'll have more time to invest in your classes or to catch up on planning and marking.
     
  • Industry specialist teachers with a range of pedagogic styles
       We have educators who have resumes rich with industry and academic achievement. No matter your specialism, there is a mentor here to support you.
     
  • Diverse curriculum, focused around creative subjects
       There are plenty of opportunities to infuse your subject with creativity and industry relevance, no matter what field you're in. It's certainly encouraged here.
     
  • Projects Team - opportunities to run projects in fields you are passionate about
       If you find yourself want to invest yourself in more extended curriculum activities at EUTC, support one of our projects by leading, mentoring or accompanying students working on an EUTC Productions brief. Quite often these are film or design focused, but in the past have included musical events, charity campaigns, social media projects and drama performances.
     
  • Opportunities for career progression
       We are a young organisation with plenty of room for expansion. Every year we are diversifying and fine tuning our offer, so come and make your mark! Help mould the creative arts curriculum at EUTC.
     
  • Laptop/Chromebook for each member of staff
     
  • We run on Google's 'G Suite' and have big aspirations to go paperless!
