Would you like to work in an outstanding school with an award winning head teacher?

Are you interested in working at a school which relentlessly pursues improvements in teaching and learning? Are you a Social Science teacher ready and able to continue the trend of above expected rates of progress at GCSE and A Level?

Our client school received both these items of praise in their last Ofsted report, which took them from 'Requires Improvement' to 'Outstanding', something which the school are obviously keen to continue, through the careful selection of teachers to take up positions within the school.

The school are looking for a qualified teacher of Social Science on a full time basis. This is a wonderful opportunity for a teacher to be very involved in all aspects of social science right through the school through out the keystages. Interested candidates must be able to teach psychology, sociology and social science across keystages 3, 4 and 5.

The school is a relatively average sized secondary academy easily accessible from most parts of Essex. It has a small sixth form, and strong links with the local community. It benefits from a new building, built within the last 5 years, so facilities are modern and complete. The curriculum is broad and allows students to make informed choices, while at the same time receiving effective advice about careers and higher education options.

The successful candidate will:

*be an outstanding and innovative classroom practitioner who can lead and enthuse students
*have a proven track record of impacting on student achievement and the development of the department
*have excellent organisational and communication skills, with an eye for detail
*exude a passion for learning and a driving ambition for every learner to progress
*have a sense of humour and the ability to keep a smile on your face at all times

The school can offer:

*excellent facilities including interactive white boards in every classroom
*a family ethos with dynamic and supportive staff
*a diverse learning cohort that appreciate the effort staff make for them, leading to rewarding outcomes
*a school with an aim to enhance the life chances and opportunities afforded to its young people

The school are looking for a teacher with qualifications and experience to match the school's aspirations. The successful candidate will need to ensure that all students respond promptly to precise and clear feedback, and make necessary corrections and changes to accelerate their progress. The school believes this approach is the key to improving further over time.
