Job Description

Rather unexpectedly, one of our secondary schools in Cheshire, have requested a general science teacher to start immediately. Depending on variable factors, this role could extend well into the next term, but this will be discussed further whilst on placement.

As part of our ongoing commitment to seeking experienced, qualified and successful science specialists, this particular role dictates that the successful teacher be able to teach science up to KS4 (experience of delivering up to KS5 would be an advantage, but not a necessity).

Due to the nature of the school, its learners and parent’s aspirations, all applicants will be expected to start immediately and be committed to completing the remainder of this term.

What do I need?

  • have experience of delivering science up to GCSE and have a track record of success
  • have a relevant degree and have a classification of 2:1 or better (although this can be negotiated)
  • either be an NQT or already hold QTS
  • be an ‘outstanding’ and highly committed teacher who is passionate about their subject and the schools’ learners
  • be passionate about making a difference; deliver after school intervention and enrichment programmes and contribute to wider school activities.

Job Specification

If your specialism is teaching biology, physics or chemistry and you’re looking for work in a school, we may have jobs to interest you, particularly if you are a newly qualified teacher (NQT) or looking for supply teaching work.

As a Science Teacher you’ll be expected to:

  • Teach all areas of your subject specialism
  • Organise the classroom and learning resources to create a positive teaching environment
  • Plan, prepare and teach lessons that cater for all student ability ranges
  • Motivate pupils with enthusiastic, imaginative presentation
  • Maintain discipline
  • Meet requirements for the assessment and recording of pupils’ development
  • Coordinate activities and resources within a specific area of the curriculum, supporting colleagues in the delivery of this specialist area
  • Stay up to date with changes and developments in the structure of the curriculum
  • Liaise with colleagues and working flexibly, particularly within smaller schools.

What New Directions Education offers:

  • A dedicated and expert Account Manager
  • Regular and varied supply work
  • Competitive rates of pay
  • Potential long-term teaching roles
  • Full compliance with the Agency Workers Regulation (AWR)
  • A network of branches across the UK
  • Preferred supplier to more than 20 boroughs across the UK
