 CTC Kingshurst Academy is a highly popular, oversubscribed establishment. We are currently undergoing an exciting and successful transformation in learning and teaching and are actively seeking outstanding and innovative teachers to help shape our journey from good to outstanding.   

The academy was last inspected by Ofsted in 2013 and its overall effectiveness was judged as “Good” and improving. With 85% of observed lessons found to be good or better, the inspectors reported that ‘teachers expect much of their students and communicate great enthusiasm for their subjects. Students have great respect for, and confidence in, their teachers and this supports students’ learning well’, Ofsted, 2013.  

Are you an outstanding teacher of English who is looking to join a highly effective and motivated team?  

The CTC Kingshurst Academy is looking to appoint a number of outstanding and ambitious classroom teachers with the ability to enthuse and inspire students. The English faculty are a very successful, well-established and motivated team that have achieved outcomes for English Language and English Literature at KS4 that were significantly above national averages in 2016.  The faculty, which includes a mix of experienced and newly qualified teachers, is growing significantly as a result of several successful promotions, and is keen to welcome excellent and ambitious practitioners to the team.  

The successful applicants will have a drive to improve student engagement and progress. They will also be expected to contribute to the continued development of faculty learning and teaching strategies and will demonstrate a passion for teaching for understanding. We welcome applications from NQTs and experienced teachers. 

We welcome applications of all backgrounds and experiences, and although we would prefer individuals for an April 2017 start, we will consider waiting for the right candidates. We are a progressive academy with a mixture of new and experienced staff, and we are keen to expand the teaching team further and develop outstanding practice and engaging lessons for all.    

All candidates are advised to refer to the job description and person specification before making an application. 

The Governing Body is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. This post will be subject to an Enhanced DBS Disclosure. We are an equal opportunities employer and welcome applications from candidates with relevant experience.
