Full Time
This is an exciting opportunity for a vibrant Dance teacher near Blackpool who wants a challenge of teaching KS3 and KS4, including the new 9-1 GCSE Dance course.

This role is full time and will start November 2019.

This role would suit an enthusiastic Secondary school Dance teacher looking for the next step into their career or a talented professional NQT positioned near Blackpool. During your time in the secondary school you will be teaching KS3 and KS4 Dance so you will need to keep up with the fast-paced activities going on all throughout the day.

This 'good' rated secondary school is located just outside of Blackpool around the corner from a bus stop coming from the centre of town; it also has easy access if arriving in car. This secondary school has a learning community in pursuit of excellence. They believe in having aspiration, integrity and respect for each other. Therefore, the school has requested that the candidate is excited to teach Dance to all years and to be able to interact correctly with different age groups and different personalities. It is also desirable for them to have a track record of 'Good' or 'Outstanding' practise within Dance and for them to have an extensive understanding of 11-16 year old behaviour in Secondary school. Teaching Dance will be a challenge due to the chance of de-motivation so therefore a fun and bubbly personality is also desirable.

You will need to be able to cope with the workload of creating unique dance routines and keep up with marking of Dance mock exams and other homework as this course is marked through the visual of progress from students and development of knowledge.

In order to be considered for this post, you will need to:
  • Hold QTS or equivalent recognised UK teaching qualifications.
  • Be able to teach Secondary school KS3 and KS4 Dance.
  • Have a good knowledge of the current National Curriculum.
  • Have high expectations of achievement and behaviour and always strive to get the best out of your students.
  • Have your own transport to and from the school near Blackpool.

The candidate must have an Enhanced DBS as this is an un-negotiable requirement due to the importance of safeguarding and child welfare. This can be discussed further upon application.

We are an experienced team who specialise in placing secondary teachers, primary teachers, cover supervisors, teaching assistants and school admin and clerical staff into positions all across Lancashire.
