The successful candidate will be responsible for leading, managing and inspiring a team of teachers within the Semi-Formal curriculum area to ensure standards for teaching and learning are high and best inclusive practice is developed. The curriculum area consists of learners who are working on all aspects of communication from the early stages to the phonetic stage. Some key subjects are delivered more formally but still based on need, e.g. English and maths whereas other subjects are delivered through a topic based approach; a vehicle in which to deliver personalised learning. We are seeking a Middle Leader who is a role model for their team and can support and challenge colleagues to develop teaching and learning performance to ensure all learners within the teaching and learning group maximise their achievement and progress.
