Risedale Sports & Community College science department is committed to excellence in teaching and is led by a team of forward thinking, innovative and creative specialists. We pride ourselves on putting the students at the centre of all we do, from creating an engaging, positive, welcoming environment to exploring cutting edge pedagogy.
If you are an exceptional and inspirational practitioner of science who would be able to support and add expertise to our team of teachers, then we would love to hear from you. We are looking for someone with drive and ambition who will challenge our students to make meaning in Science. The successful candidate will be a highly dynamic individual who consistently delivers innovative teaching and where possible has a proven track record of outstanding progress in external examinations.
At KS4 students follow the AQA trilogy or separate science specification. We are committed to developing an investigative approach to learning, with engaging lessons that offer challenge to all. At KS3 we have used the end of levels as an opportunity to introduce a mastery learning approach. This has enabled us to refocus the students away from reductive number labels to a genuine pursuit of skills and understanding.
The successful candidate will be open to new ideas and committed to the philosophy of the team. The profession requires resilience, hard work, adaptability and a sense of humour. The college offers all employees bespoke training and support; a highly cohesive and supportive staff team; outstanding CPD including up to date individualised action research; the opportunity to develop skills and interest through extra-curricular clubs and a chance to join Risedale at a very important point in the school’s development.
