We are seeking a highly-motivated, forward-thinking and passionate individual as a Teacher of Media and Film to work in our English department. You will teach Media Studies to Key Stage 4-5, Film Studies to Key Stage 5 alongside the opportunity to teach English at Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4. If successful, you would be working closely with our established team of 14 English teachers in promoting the highest standards of teaching and learning to support students of all backgrounds and abilities. As a department, we value teaching that is evidence-based, ensuring students are prepared for both later qualifications and building a full understanding of Media, Film and English as academic disciplines.
As a school, we value and prioritise the continuing development of our staff. This comes in a variety of forms, thorough professional development delivered in department time, weekly teaching and learning workshops, INSET days and through our close links with the Wolds TSA. As a member of the middle-leadership team, you would also have access to high-quality leadership training through regular subject leader meetings and the personalised training programme we offer our new leaders through our Teaching School.
Within The Education Alliance Multi Academy Trust, there are also further opportunities to develop and progress. As a trust, we are here to make great schools and happier, stronger communities so that people have better lives. We do this by always doing what is right, trusting in each other and standing shoulder to shoulder, and doing what we know makes a difference. Doing what is right means always acting with integrity, in the interests of others and being honest, open and transparent.
