TEACHING VACANCIES

TEACHER OF HISTORY

Full-time Main Scale MPS/UPS

Closing Date:  29th March 2019

Interview Date: Tuesday 2nd April 2019

Start Date: September 2019

Tarleton Academy is a vibrant and ambitious school with a culture of high expectations. We are now looking for a dynamic, enthusiastic and creative Teacher of History to join our successful, supportive and mutually ambitious team.  The successful candidate will join a forward thinking academy with a relentless focus on providing outstanding learning experiences and raising achievement.  

We are looking for someone with the ability to contribute our drive for high standards, attainment and progress for all learners in History and who is able to inspire and develop outstanding classroom practice with high aspirations for themselves and others. A passion for learning with creative ideas, and an ability to build positive relationships and embed an enjoyment of your subject into lessons is essential.

You will work with a committed team of specialist History and Humanities teachers and, as a teacher in the faculty, you will be involved in reviewing and developing schemes of work and resources, addressing gaps in attainment of underachieving students and ensuring progression for the classes you teach. For our staff, we are firmly committed to ensuring this is a job that can be enjoyed, where everyone can flourish. We pay close attention to work/life balance and, across the trust; we are developing strategies that take a common sense approach to those aspects of the role that could become an unnecessary burden on workload such as feedback and marking and centralised detentions. 

Our Teaching School is the beating heart of our Trust and our teachers learn together across the Trust, sharing their practice and encouraging and supporting each other to get the best out of our working day. The candidate will have opportunities to work with other colleagues in the Teaching School to support and develop the teaching of History with our family of schools.

In our schools we have a relentless focus on excellence, high standards of behaviour but with the pragmatic emphasis on the balance between challenge and support, high expectation and nurture. And this counts for students and staff, teaching and non-teaching, so that our schools develop a family ethos, where everyone wants the best for everyone else.

In our team, therefore, our teachers are committed to continuously improving the classroom experience of our students with a genuine desire to improve the life chances of our young people. 

If you think this sounds like a place you would like to develop your career and your love of teaching then you can apply online.
As part of the interview process candidates will be required to teach a 45 minute lesson to a mixed attainment Year 9 class on a topic that would inspire students to take GCSE History. 

Candidates should ensure that they and their referees are easily contactable, with the correct phone number and email address and able to reply promptly if references are requested.

Whilst this is a full time position, a part time position would be considered for the right candidate.

Prospective candidates are welcome and encouraged to contact the school for a tour prior to the final application please contact Mrs S Rooney, PA to Headteacher, at s.rooney@tarletonacademy.org to organise a tour.
