Interview date Tuesday 3rd September 2019

Plymouth School of Creative Arts is seeking to appoint an enthusiastic
and inspiring qualified teacher of Spanish and French who can bring
languages to life and create a nurturing learning environment, within
which everyone can reach their full potential. We are looking to start as
soon as possible but are happy for the person to start after the October
half term.

Plymouth School of Creative Arts is a 3 -16 mainstream, city centre,
all-through school sponsored by Plymouth College of Art. We opened our
Primary phase in September 2013, and our Secondary phase in
September 2014.

Our initial intake comprised 94 students (Reception and Year One).
We now have over one thousand students in the school, from Preschool
to Year 11.

The successful candidate will play a key part in the creation,
development and teaching of exciting and meaningful schemes of learning for KS2 Spanish and KS2 French. Additionally, they will teach at KS3 which, each term, will alternate French and Spanish so that students have a much more informed choice when picking their options at the end of
year 8. There is also potential for teaching GCSE Spanish and French.

Plymouth School of Creative Arts is proud to run trips abroad for most
year groups in KS3 and 4 (Roscoff for Year 7, Ile de Batz for Year 8, Paris for Year 9/10 and Seville for Year 9/10). We would like our new team member to support the organisation of, and attend at least one of the trips.

Over the years our school has established strong pastoral care. The successful candidate will join a committed tutor team in which they will build
and maintain positive relationships with the students.

It is essential that our new team member has strong content knowledge
in both Spanish and French [ideally fluent in Spanish and at least GCSE
level French]. They need to be familiar with the new GCSE specification
and examinations. To thrive in our school, the successful candidate will need to be adaptable with excellent behaviour management skills.
In addition, the ability to remain calm and resilient throughout a busy
school day is important. Teaching should be engaging and should take
into account the students’ learning needs as well as their wider

We are seeking someone who can bring fresh ideas to the table, a problem solver who can embrace feedback, a curious mind who reads about
current MFL pedagogy and practice with the intention of making the MFL department modern, vibrant, well-organised and in line with the school’s improvement cycle and policies.

So, what are we looking for in you? To be successful, you need to be a
qualified teacher who is passionate and knowledgeable about your
subject and possess the ability to teach consistently to a high standard.
Whether you are an early career teacher or an expert teacher, we focus
on what attributes you will bring to the department and most
importantly what impact you will have on our students.

Applicants should have a commitment to their own learning and be able
to adapt to changing and individual needs. In return, we will provide the support, encouragement and resources to help us all achieve great things
