We are looking for an innovative Teacher to join our dynamic team who are dedicated to providing the best possible opportunities to our students.  From September we will be introducing an exciting new year 7 curriculum and we are looking for a primary trained teacher with an English specialism.  Many of our students arrive not reaching the required secondary ready standard and our new year 7 curriculum is designed to enable students to catch up and be successful in their secondary school career.  

Our focus is always on student progression and attainment and the successful candidate will be committed to achieving this. You will have the ability to inspire, enthuse and encourage students to enjoy their learning, leading to a desire to achieve their highest potential.  Applications from both experienced Teachers and Newly Qualified Teachers would be welcomed.  Teachers who have trained with us describe their experience as trainees and NQTs very favourably.

We are an ambitious learning community with high aspirations and expectations. There are 1200 students (over 200 in the sixth form) on roll at the academy and over 200 staff. At ‘A’ level we are part of the VI6 consortium providing ‘A’ level teaching hosted at the University of Essex. With our strong focus on employability we have exciting and innovative links with employers and the local community.

As the sponsor, AET believes that all young people deserve to become world-class learners – to learn, enjoy, succeed and thrive in a first rate educational environment with the best facilities, the best teaching and the most up-to-date resources available to them.  In each of the AET academies, you will benefit from visionary, inspirational and dynamic leadership and be empowered to develop your own skills with access to world-class CPD and Talent Management programmes.  You will also be offered membership of a Health Cash Plan, Childcare Vouchers and much more.
