John Henry Newman Catholic College strives to be at the forefront of school improvement and innovation and invests heavily in the creation of a learning community where we all have the responsibility to learn from others and to contribute to the professional development of our colleagues. It is through this collaborative culture that together we can break down barriers to learning and support our students to gain the competitive edge over other applicants to leading Universities, prestigious apprenticeships and the subsequent world of work.
The Governors seek to appoint a committed and well qualified, dynamic and enthusiastic Year Co-ordinator to join our College. He/she will have the motivation and energy to inspire young people and a determination to never settle for second best.
The purpose of this important role is to work with young people to help them to develop high aspirations for themselves; to foster their enthusiasm for personal growth and success in a way that reflects the values of our Catholic Faith in leading them to a greater understanding of the mission that God has for them.
The role will involve supporting all students to achieve their true vocation through development of their sense of vocation and knowledge of the world of work and business. You will be promoting positive behaviours and focussing on the development of character of each child and supporting them to adopt both the spiritual and enabling virtues (set out in our heart values) throughout their lives. Through robust monitoring of data, you will support students to achieve the academic and personal standards required to secure them a place at a top university or prestigious apprenticeship.
A challenge of the role is to be able to engender an excitement and curiosity for learning and for high attainment that is sustained year on year and that leads to a self confidence in being able to work independently and with others in a way that brings out the best in all.
The College Governors are proud of what John Henry Newman Catholic College has achieved to date and are keen to appoint someone who wholeheartedly shares their ambition and commitment to the mission of the College.
John Henry Newman Catholic College is committed to the safeguarding and welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. The successful candidate will, therefore, be required to undertake an Enhanced Disclosure via the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) as well as providing evidence of qualifications.
