Job Vacancy
Teacher of Modern Foreign Languages

Job Start: September 2022
Contract: Fixed Term Contract (12 months maternity cover)

We are seeking to appoint an inspirational and highly effective linguist with Spanish as their main language, to foster a love of languages across Rudheath Senior Academy. This is an exciting opportunity for an excellent practitioner to work collaboratively with the department to raise academic achievement and to ensure all students make good progress in MFL across Key Stages 3 and 4.

The successful candidate will be a team player, who will instil a passion for MFL through high quality learning and teaching, ideally in both Spanish and French; just Spanish is also acceptable. The school offers a detailed CPD programme, newly built learning environments, and a plethora of extra-curricular and cross-curricular opportunities.

Spanish is a popular subject choice at Key Stage 4, as students are conscientious and motivated to learn a language as part of a group of subjects that provide the academic and personal development skills to open their eyes to the world of possibility. Recently, we have added French to the Key Stage 3 curriculum.

Having strong classroom management skills and excellent subject knowledge, the postholder will be able to achieve the best possible outcomes for our students. Monitoring and tracking the progress of students through data is essential, as is the ability to work effectively as part of the Modern Foreign Languages team.

This role is suitable for all professionals in their teaching career, including Early Career Teachers.
