To start in September 2019, we are seeking to appoint a qualified teacher to teach Spanish. The ideal candidate must have a good university degree in Spanish (or with Spanish as the major component), with a PGCE and Qualified Teacher Status (or equivalent). They will be expected to be fluent in spoken and written Spanish, and be a regular visitor to Spain.
In the first year, the Head of Spanish expects to offer the successful applicant a range of teaching opportunities throughout the age range.
The ability to offer French as a second language is desirable, but not essential. Spanish results in recent years have been strong (2018 results – GCSE 41% A*/A; A level 100% A*/A). The new teacher’s role will be to help maintain and improve upon this standard.
In addition to the teaching, the successful applicant will be expected to take a full part in the activities of the Department and MFL more broadly. The Spanish Department organises a wide range of cultural activities (visits to conferences, shows, plays; masterclasses for Year 5 pupils; cultural days; music club, writing competitions etc.) and trips to Spain and Latin America. All members of the Department contribute to keeping resources up-to-date.
For further details about this exciting opportunity to join our friendly and enthusiastic staff team, please visit our website to access the job description. If you are interested in applying for this position, please complete an application form and return it to the Headmaster along with a covering letter and your CV by the closing date of 9.00am Thursday 22nd November 2018. Successful applicants will be invited to attend an interview on Thursday 29th November 2018.
