The Head of Chemistry will manage the teachers in the department and provide the structure for them to deliver the curriculum from years 7 to 11 and to assess and monitor the department's impact in relation to the school’s targets.

The role is at a mixed secondary school based in East London. This is a permanent role opportunity, starting from September 2018.

The successful candidate will track and monitor the progress of Pupils in Chemistry, and ensure timely interventions are made as needed.

The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff to share this commitment. This post is subject to a DBS enhanced disclosure check.

The successful candidate will:
- Be a qualified Chemistry teacher (ideally with PGCE, GTP, B'ed, Cert Ed, BA with QTS).
- Demonstrate recent experience of teaching as up to and including GCSE in Chemistry.
- Hold good honours degree or equivalent in Chemistry.
- Show evidence of continuing professional development related to teaching Chemistry (Middle Leader qualification is desirable).
