We are seeking to appoint an outstanding practitioner with a proven track record of teaching excellence to join our expanding Academy Improvement Team and become our Lead Practitioner of Science for September 2023. You will help to inspire our committed and supportive team across the academy, modelling and leading the improvement of teaching skills to raise student achievement in all groups and to narrow any gaps in attainment. We warmly welcome applications from experienced teachers who are passionate about their subject and are dedicated to enabling students to make excellent progress.
Your focus will be on raising attainment in Science by working with other teachers and leaders across the organisation. You will be expected to support colleagues to deliver their timetable to the very highest standards and be open-minded to step in and support when necessary. This is a unique, exciting opportunity for career development towards headship.
As a Lead Practitioner, you will be part of a large team with a wide range of experience and expertise. The department will, in time, train and develop trainee teachers and ECTs as a means of investing in the future of the department and the academy. With senior leaders also in the department, you will be able to rely on the expertise of established practitioners who will also play a part in working with you to continue to develop the Science curriculum and implement this effectively. This is a fantastic opportunity for a highly effective practitioner to contribute and support the leadership of raising standards in teaching and learning across the department, which will inevitably have a positive and direct impact on pupils' learning and experience in Science.
Achievement for all students regardless of background is our key objective. We offer stimulating learning environments where effective teaching and learning are underpinned by high-quality interpersonal relationships. If you are ambitious for yourself and the learners you serve, then you are the person we need.
