Tes Schools RecruitmentRochester, Kent

Teacher of Music Theory.

This position is a zero-hours contract and will offer flexibility to those seeking part-time hours. Interviews will take place in the week commencing 26th April 2021.

Tes is currently supporting a friendly and supportive independent school, based in Rochester, Kent. The school is looking to add a Teacher of Music Theory to its progressive and supportive Music Department ideally starting in Summer Term 2021.

The role will include teaching and coordinating the delivery of Music Theory at KS3, GCSE and A-level across year groups 7 to 13.  You will support the Head of Science to enhance provision and will get the chance to get involved with exciting project work throughout the year. Project work will include revising schemes of work and ensuring the curriculum is engaging to all learners alongside projects that support student attainment, well-being and engagement within the wider school. You’ll also lead by example, supporting learners to achieve to the best of their ability and you’ll enjoy that great feeling when your learners achieve grades beyond their dreams.

“We seek an inspiring and enthusiastic Teacher of Music Theory to deliver theory lessons to Cathedral Choristers across the Prep and Senior Schools. The music department at the school is a friendly, busy environment in which pupils thrive: Last year alone, alumni have won places to study music at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire (Violin) and Guildhall School of Music and Drama (violin); pupils in the Lower Sixth hold places in the National Youth Orchestra and the National Youth Training Choirs and a number of pupils are involved with Kent County Music ensembles.  At the school pupil also won the Woodard Schools’ Young Musician competition in May 2020.

The choral tradition at the school remains one of the pillars of the school: The Cathedral Choristers have been educated at the school for centuries and the school has had a close association with the Cathedral since its founding in 604AD.  Last year, the senior choir made a CD in the cathedral and joined pupils from other schools in the Woodard Schools’ Choral Festival.  Since January 2019, theory lessons for Choristers have been taught at the school and this is an arrangement we seek to continue."

The school is offering:

• A super supportive and highly visible SLT team and Headteacher;

• on-going CPD with programmes of study such as NPQML and MA in Educational Leadership

• progression support throughout the school

• the chance to take on further responsibility such as Leadership roles in the future.

• a relevant Music Theory / Music / ABRSM grade 6 qualification or a related subject

• experience of delivering Music Theory up to A-level pushing and engaging learners to progress within the subject

• a love and passion for education.
