Teacher of MFL (French and Spanish)

Coombeshead AcademyNewton Abbot, Devon

The MFL Department is a successful team of lively and experienced teachers. This is a wonderful place to teach languages.

We require a full time MFL teacher from September to teach MFL at Coombeshead Academy (part of Education South West) for one year as maternity cover for an existing member of staff. The MFL curriculum team is an open, friendly, and successful team.

Students are given a choice which language they would like to study when they start Year 7. We offer both French and Spanish in our curriculum area. Students study a language throughout KS3 with the majority expected to continue their studies through to GCSE. We are very proud to have languages and the EBACC at the heart of our ambitious curriculum.

The MFL curriculum area has a suite of 5 dedicated classrooms and a staffroom which is shares with another team.  

There are clear schemes of work for Key Stage 3 and 4, and the curriculum team works closely together in formulating modules and standardising assessment.  A collaborative approach also provides a great base for professional discussion and innovation in terms of curriculum and pedagogy. 

ESW is committed to safeguarding and protecting the welfare of children, and applicants must be willing to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and an enhanced disclosure via the Disclosure and Barring Service.
