History is part of the Humanities and Languages faculty at Essa Academy. The faculty consists of twelve teachers at varying stages of their teaching careers. As a team of committed and forward thinking practitioners, we are dedicated to creating a love for learning amongst our students. We aim to provide a curriculum that allows our young people to leave Essa Academy as well rounded individuals with an understanding of where studying the subjects we are passionate about can take them. History is taught discreetly at KS3 and students make option choices at the end of Year 9. We currently deliver the AQA specification at GCSE, focusing on Elizabethan England, Medicine, America and WWI. We also deliver a number of additional qualifications which draw strong links with our department, for example, the Archbishop of York Young Leaders Award, the Duke of Edinburgh Award and the army cadet force.
Planning is shared which allows us to deliver an enriching and engaging curriculum with resources to support a range of abilities and learners. The school offers all teaching staff 20% PPA which allows our team to help move our faculty forwards at a rapid pace, whilst maintaining a very important work-life balance. High quality CPD is delivered on a weekly basis by our skilled and supportive teaching and learning team.
The successful candidate will be an enthusiastic, passionate and inspirational teacher of History, with a real passion for teaching and learning. A commitment to achieving excellent results for students through holding high expectations of themselves and others is essential. We are looking for a teacher who is a real team player, and someone who can contribute to helping to shape the future of our faculty.
