Curriculum Leader for MFL
TLR 2c - currently £6,824

Required for September 2020
(full-time permanent post)

Longbenton is a successful 11-18 school looking to appoint a Curriculum Leader of MFL from September 2020. This post has come about as a result of the existing post-holder retiring after many years of much valued service. The successful applicant will be well supported both in the department and by the senior leadership of the school.

MFL’s popularity with pupils at Longbenton has risen sharply in the past couple of years in both French and Spanish. Outcomes in MFL improved markedly in summer 2019 and there is potential for further progress due to significant improvements in the quality of teaching and learning within the department. This is an important appointment for us and our priority is getting a very good leader and teacher. In return, you will work in a very supportive environment with pupils who want to learn alongside a friendly staff who are keen to collaborate and develop their practice. The main responsibilities are set out in the applicant’s pack, which you will find on our school website, www.longbenton.org.uk.

The successful candidate will be required to teach across the age and ability range of KS3 for French as well as either French or Spanish to GCSE. The potential to be able to teach either French or Spanish at KS5 would be an advantage. We have a strong and balanced skill set in our MFL teaching team, which means that we would welcome applicants with particular strengths in either French or Spanish.

The school run many successful extra-curricular events, and as such the successful candidate to get involved in the whole life of the school. Longbenton offers the successful candidate a whole-hearted commitment to professional learning that places individual development at the heart of its ethos.

Closing date for receipt of applications is 12 noon on Thursday 6 February 2020 with interviews on Wednesday 12 February 2020.

Longbenton is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Any offer of employment will be subject to a satisfactory DBS check.
