English Teacher

Luton, Bedfordshire
Tradewind is working with a forward-thinking, modern academy in Luton looking to recruit a strong English teacher to teach Key Stage 3 and 4 until the end of the year, with a permanent contract available for the right candidate. This school is part of a six-academy trust in which all schools have made rapid improvements in both examination results and Ofsted feedback, and where high expectations of conduct and academic rigour are expected across the trust. The school has a strong SLT who have overseen their recent period of improvement, and a supportive English department which encourages creative approaches and ideas.

This school is seeking a teacher who will:
*Be able to demonstrate creative and engaging approaches to their teaching with a good record of achievement
*Have a proven ability to raise standards in classrooms
*Have experience of leading teaching and learning initiatives beyond their classroom
*Be able to plan and resource effective interventions to meet curricular objectives
*Have an excellent understanding of the components which comprise outstanding teaching and learning

This may be either an experienced practitioner or an NQT with strong feedback from their course provider who is seeking thorough, structured training and mentoring in their first teaching role.

The school is a modern build with state of the art facilities, easily accessible from the M1 with good transport links to Luton, Dunstable and further afield via train. Behaviour is good across the school, with students' respect for teachers and peers highlighted by Ofsted as a strength of the school. The trust pride themselves on excellent CPD and career progression opportunities, and aim to provide thorough training and strong leadership to all staff, both within their individual schools and across the trust as a whole. For those interested in teaching at KS5, the opportunity is available both on this school site and at the trust's specialist 16-18 site.
