The Role

Owing to the expansion of this popular department, we are seeking to recruit a number of outstanding teachers of science to join a committed and hardworking team from September 2019.  Whilst applicants will ideally specialise in chemistry or physics, our principal aim is to secure quality practitioners and, as such, all scientific disciplines will be considered.

The successful applicants will be expected to teach a range of classes across Key Stages 3 and 4 (Trilogy Science and Separate Science), as well as potentially Key Stage 5 lessons.  At Tudor Grange Academy, Kingshurst, we aim to provide staff with a timetable that allows them to focus on their area of specialism and, therefore, continue to be experts in their field, whilst contributing to other sciences.  

Much time is committed to developing a wide range of teaching and learning strategies to be implemented within the subject, with a focus on a collaborative approach to planning with centralised, shared units of work and resources. As a department we follow the AQA specification at KS4.  

We’re after the right applicant and, as such, a number of additional project opportunities are available within the science team, each with a TLR 3 attached.  If you’re a practitioner looking for the next challenge or a project to really get some experience on your CV, this may be just what you’re looking for. The projects focus specifically on: 

 transition between KS2-3;

 intervention and closing gaps in student knowledge; 

 scientific engagement.

Additionally, you will benefit from:

• teaching in a forward-thinking department with excellent resources and facilities for teachers who love their subject 

• working in a multi-academy trust with the potential for opportunities of collaboration and leadership across the four other secondary schools, as well as large-scale Trust INSETs with opportunities to network and share best practice and resources across the Tudor Grange family of schools 

Informal visits and conversations about the post are most welcome.

Application Deadline: 12:00pm Friday 20th May 2019

Shortlisting: Monday 29th April 2019  

Interviews:   Thursday 2nd and Friday 3rd April 2019 

Application Process

Completed applications must be returned to Louise Colley at the academy by 12pm on the closing date via email to lcolley@kingshurst.tgacademy.org.uk

The recruitment process is robust in seeking to establish the commitment of candidates to support the school’s measures to safeguard children and to identify, deter or reject people who might pose a risk of harm to children or are otherwise unsuited to work with them. The successful applicant will be required to undertake an Enhanced DBS check.  All applications will be considered on their merit and the post will be offered subject to the usual health and criminal record clearance. We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
