Step Teachers are working with a large Multi Academy Trust who require an experienced middle leader to head up their languages department based in South West London.  As a Head of MFL, you'll be responsible for raising attainment across the faculty as well as ensuring excellent standards of teaching and learning . This Head of Languages post is a permanent offering, starting in September 2020. The school is well aware of the challenges ahead in regards to recruitment and are more than happy to interview candidates via video conferencing. 

The ideal candidate will possess the following:

  • You will QTS along with a PGCE specialising in either French or Spanish 
  • The appointed Head of Language should motivate, enthuse, excite and challenge students to produce the highest quality work
  • To promote the positive ethos and culture of the school to other staff, governors, parents, children and members of the wider community
  • Previous experience leading a languages department and demonstrable experience of raising attainment levels

The students and staff at this school work hard to develop a school that reflects and values its inclusive ethos and multi-cultural community. The goal of this school is to prepare pupils for the challenges of making progress in a highly competitive world but also to carve out time to support them in developing personally and spiritually. Boasting a proven track record of achieving outstanding success in delivering a wide range of qualifications, there is a dual focus on fostering the vision and values that will create great leadership skills for the future. The SMT are supportive and welcoming, demonstrating a deep desire to foster strong relationships between all staff members.

Step Teachers are fully committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff to share this commitment.

Unlike other agencies, Step Teachers are more than happy to process your pay via PAYE – you will not be forced to go with an Umbrella Company.
