Finham Park Multi Academy Trust (MAT) is delighted to announce that we are recruiting a Mandarin teacher to work in our secondary schools within the MAT.

This is an exciting opportunity as we were one of the first Trusts in England selected to participate in the Mandarin Excellence Programme (MEP) - a new intensive language programme funded by the Department for Education.  The nationwide programme offers students an unprecedented opportunity in terms of language provision and aims to see at least 5,000 school pupils in England on track towards fluency in Mandarin Chinese by 2020. We are at the forefront of delivering the programme – with support from the UCL Institute of Education and the British Council.   

Mandarin Chinese is recognised as one of the most important languages for the UK’s future. The programme therefore provides a fantastic opportunity for students to acquire vital language skills at an early stage – something essential for work and for life in an increasingly connected world. Students on the programme will study eight hours of Mandarin Chinese every week – including four hours of classroom taught lessons – with selected groups of pupils beginning from Year 7.  

We are seeking to appoint an innovative and highly motivated teacher of Mandarin. You will be joining a team of enthusiastic Mandarin Language Teachers who are committed to delivering a high quality, lively and exciting  curriculum to challenge and inspire all our students. 

Completed application forms should be returned to apply@finhampark.co.uk  or by post to:
