The school are looking for a passionate and skilled teacher with experience of delivering the National Curriculum at KS3 and KS4. Experience of A-level and/or BTEC teaching is desirable, but not essential. Candidates with any specialisms will be considered for this role.

This large, mixed secondary school is located in the Braintree area. The school's most recent Ofsted rating was good in all areas.

Great emphasis is placed on supporting teachers at all phases in their career to develop through bespoke CPD. You will also be provided with additional support through a robust and comprehensive induction period led by the Head of PE.

If you would like to work in an environment where students are polite, pleasant and keen to learn, and want to be part of their journey to outstanding, then they would love to hear from you.

You will:
  • Hold Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), after completing a PGCE, Graduate Teaching Program (GTP), Bachelor of Education (B.Ed), QTLS or equivalent overseas teaching qualification
