Linton Village CollegeCambridgeshire

We are looking to appoint a creative, enthusiastic and ambitious teacher of French and Spanish to teach across the age range 11-16. We will consider both full and part-time applications. This is an opportunity to join an experienced MFL team in a supportive school environment and to make a significant contribution to departmental developments. For a suitable candidate, there may be the possibility of an allowance to lead the Spanish curriculum.

The MFL Department at Linton Village College has a national profile for its pedagogy and cutting edge practice. The team is comprised of energetic, supportive, friendly and creative practitioners who are committed to delivering engaging lessons and high attainment in MFL. In 2019, 86% of year 11 students at Linton Village College achieved 4+ in GCSE French, 75% achieved 5+, whilst 66% of year 11 students achieved 4+ in Spanish and 52% achieved 5+. Whilst these figures exceed the national averages especially in French, we are continually striving to raise achievement further, particularly in Spanish, with particular focus on our higher prior attainers and disadvantaged students.

We welcome applications from talented and ambitious teachers who wish to join an excellent school. They must be a positive, collaborative individual who will contribute to high standards and a culture of excellence and innovation. The successful applicant must be able to teach French and Spanish, at least one of them to GCSE. The ability to teach both to GCSE level would be beneficial. We welcome applications from newly qualified or established teachers.
