Class people are currently recruiting a suitably qualified, Female PE teacher capable of teaching Secondary Physical Education across KS3 – KS5; especially someone interested and appreciative of being represented, by a former teacher and senior leader.

I would like to hear from a female PE teacher who is available at various stages during the academic year. I have formed strong and trustworthy relationships with my schools across The South West more importantly, I would love to introduce you to them.

What will I have to do?

My secondary schools require teachers at various times in the academic year and for varying levels of time; both part and full time. A large proportion of the schools require a female PE teacher who is confident teaching across key stages 3 – 5; however, experience of teaching key stages 3 – 4 is often accepted and negotiable.

Due to the nature of the work, it is important you can engage students, have a sense of humour as well as a strong classroom presence, with excellent classroom and strong behaviour management skills. Ideally, you will have varying levels of qualifications relevant to teaching sport across the PE curriculum.

Due to the short notice some schools provide, you must be adaptable and flexible to their needs and requirements.

What qualifications or experience do I need?

  • A teacher with a sense of humour
