Teacher of German

Hockerill Anglo-European CollegeHertfordshire

The College has a strong international perspective and offers the International Baccalaureate Diploma and Middle Years Programmes, alongside GCSEs. History, Geography and Music are delivered through the bilingual section in French and German and the curriculum ranges from beginners’ to Literature courses for native speakers. It runs a large number of international trips and exchanges. Experience of the International Baccalaureate would be viewed with interest but is not a prerequisite, as would experience of teaching humanities in the target language as part of a bilingual programme.

 The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme, at Sixth Form, offers Language A (for native level speakers), Language B (non-native speakers) and Ab Initio (beginners). Both Language A Literature and B are at Higher and Standard levels. The full range of courses is available to teach for appropriately qualified candidates.

Hockerill Anglo-European College has been consistently ranked in the top tier UK state comprehensive league tables post sixteen for a number of years and achieves high rankings for its GCSE results. Based on its GCSE and IB Diploma results, it was ranked in the top three Comprehensive schools in the country in the Sunday Times 2020 Schools Guide and it is also the most oversubscribed school in Hertfordshire.

The College is situated in Bishop’s Stortford within the beautiful landscaped grounds of a former teacher training college and is within 30 minutes of both London and Cambridge, with Stansted Airport just 10 minutes away. We have a roll of approximately 850 students, both day and boarding, including a Sixth Form of 250 students.
