Bishop Justus are seeking to appoint an inspiring and enthusiastic Teacher of Modern Foreign Languages. Applicants should be passionate about teaching languages and be able to inspire, encourage and engage our students.
We are looking for a teacher with enthusiasm, passion and outstanding subject knowledge, with vision, presence and clarity. A teacher who can create exciting and interesting lessons that students will enjoy and learn a lot from, and who has a set of experience skills that can influence the department to enhance the active, engaging learning that allows students to achieve in a safe learning environment.
We want students not to just study languages but to become linguists in the way they think and learn.
The person joining the department will have a strong enthusiasm for the subject, enjoy teaching and be very forward thinking. We aim to develop a Modern Languages department for the 21st century where students’ learning is appropriate to their interests and strengths.
This post requires you to teach both French and Spanish to pupils of all abilities. The aim of the Modern Foreign Languages department is to promote a very positive, open-minded and confident attitude towards all languages and cultures. Students are encouraged to participate orally in the target language as much as possible, develop their knowledge of French and Spanish-speaking countries’ cultures, linguistic and social conventions and take part in the different cross-curricular or extra-curricular activities organised within the Department, e.g. the MFL Club, and trips to Paris and Madrid. We are also very fortunate to have French and Spanish Foreign Language Assistants who work with students currently at KS4 and KS5 to develop their confidence and accents when speaking in a foreign language.
Bishop Justus Church of England School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people, and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
