JOB TITLE: Teacher of French (with Spanish)
Grade and Salary: Main Scale/Upper Pay Scale
Working pattern: Full time
Contract term: Permanent
Location: The Manor Academy, Mansfield Woodhouse, Nottinghamshire
A Teacher of French, with the ability to teach Spanish at Key Stage 3, is required to join an increasingly successful MFL team, who are rapidly improving results through the delivery of an innovative and inspiring curriculum, including a partnership with a school in Madrid.
The Modern Foreign Languages’ Faculty currently consists of three teachers, with French and Spanish being taught in Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 and on offer at A-levels. The department is extremely supportive with an increasing uptake of MFL at GSCE. Links with the local universities are strong, with the Modern Languages Faculty hosting trainee teachers and student ambassadors.
We are looking for someone to join a committed team of teachers who work in a caring and supportive environment and who are focused on enabling each student to develop and excel in MFL. The successful applicant will be enthusiastic, resourceful and keen to ensure that the highest possible standards of pupil achievement, personal development and well-being are achieved. The post would equally suit a confident and ambitious NQT or an experienced teacher with excellent subject knowledge, a willingness to learn and a passion for teaching.
All of our faculties are committed to continually improving the quality of teaching and learning and raising the aspirations of all students and therefore a willingness to share your knowledge and experience with others is essential. An ability to teach Spanish would be an advantage.
