Required September 2019
Would you like to progress your career in a school recently judged by OFSTED as ‘outstanding’, a school where both student achievement and attitudes to learning are amongst the best in the North East? Would you also like to work in a fantastic, newly built school, set in one of County Durham’s most scenic areas? If the answer to each of these questions is ‘yes’ then Sedgefield Community College could be right for you.
We particularly welcome applicants from those who are relatively new to the profession. Or, those who will newly qualify in 2019, and would therefore wish to progress their career in an outstanding and supportive PE department under the guidance of an outstanding Subject Leader.
If you are someone who has the ability to engage and enthuse students with a love of sport and fitness, coupled with the drive and commitment required to become a truly outstanding teacher, then we would like to hear from you.
Applicants should complete an application form and indicate through a letter (no more than two sides of A4) how their experience to date has prepared them for this role and how they would ensure future success.
