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
