Harris Academy Rainham is looking to appoint a qualified Teacher of MFL, specialising in Spanish, to join its team of specialists.
The post will involve ensuring quality of delivery, assessment, achievement and progress in Spanish at Harris Academy Rainham in years 7 to 11 and the promotion of an imaginative, extensive and immersive experience including relevant practical experience, visits and trips.
We can offer you the opportunity to advance your career within a supportive academy environment. You will be part of a Federation established in developing practitioners and nurturing excellent future leaders, with unrivalled opportunities for progression; whatever your aspirations as a teacher, middle or senior leader, our Teaching School Alliance provides a range of bespoke courses and qualifications, including our Aspiring Leaders NPQML and NPQSL programmes to help you achieve your ambitions more quickly.
What we are looking for
We look for talented individuals who want to be a part of transforming education in London, and helping create exceptional places of learning. Applications are welcome from experienced teachers, NQTs, RQTs or beginning teachers who are committed and passionate about MFL and their impact on the overall development of students and who share our belief that every student can and should achieve. Applicants should have an engaging love of subject and an unwavering belief in the ability of pupils to exceed expectations, and must hold QTS (or equivalent) and a relevant undergraduate degree.
Candidates should have a drive to understand the thinking processes and drivers necessary for success in MFL in addition to the intellectual and psychological barriers to the learning of the subject and be prepared to research and strategise to ensure that students make the best possible progress. As an educator, the successful candidate should recognise the need for students to develop outstanding habits of behaviour and learning and therefore be prepared to think outside of his or her discipline in order to achieve these aims.
You must hold QTS (or equivalent) and a relevant undergraduate degree to be considered for this post.

Special educational needs are catered for with care and expertise.
