Information About The Job

English Language and English Literature are part of the thriving Faculty of Communications & Performing Arts, each with their own Head of Subject. There is some shared staffing between the teams and both have very high levels of student satisfaction and success. In Literature, to complement the AS and A2 programme, there is an extensive range of workshops as well as theatre, conference and other trips. The specification is OCR, with all classes being shared by two teachers to increase the range of professional experience and skill available to students. The English Language specification is AQA and a number of students go on to study language or linguistics courses in higher education.

We seek a full time Teacher of English to teach both Literature and Language on a fixed term basis for one year. The successful candidate will be a graduate of English or of a closely allied subject, familiar with contemporary issues in the teaching of English and able to share their enthusiasm for the subject with their students. You will be a reflective teacher, committed to excellence in teaching and learning. We welcome applications from both newly qualified and experienced teachers.

We would also advise you that posts advertised to start in September 2017 actually commence with student enrolment on Tuesday 29 August 2017. Teaching staff are required to work this week but should you have an existing commitment please make this clear on your application and we will honour it.
