Your new role
In your new English teaching job you will enjoy working within a secondary school situated in the Hastings area and will specialise within Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4.

You will need to be a creative and positive teacher who is able to embrace new surroundings and situations, whilst demonstrating a professional manor at all times.
