  • Multiple Locations
  • Full Time

Ivy Education Trust is seeking to appoint a Teacher of Spanish who is an excellent classroom practitioner, deeply committed to improving student outcomes and passionate about teaching and learning to join our growing MFL Department at Newton Abbot College.

The languages department have significantly grown in popularity over the past five years as a result of student engagement and also the college's commitment to all students in KS4 studying a language. Studying a language at GCSE is rapidly becoming the norm at Newton Abbot College with 82% of our year 9 students studying a language and 63% in year 10. As well as an increase in uptake, results in the department continue to improve, with GCSE results significantly higher than national averages for French and Spanish in 2022. This is something that we are very proud of.

We are looking for a classroom practitioner who is:
• Inspirational, dedicated and forward-thinking;
• Determined to raise standards across both languages;
• Creative, enthusiastic and committed to active learning;
• An excellent team player.

A teacher who can:
• Demonstrate excellent planning and organisational skills;
• Enthuse and motivate all students;
• Demonstrate incredibly high expectations;
• Believe that all students are capable of success;
• Teach Spanish to A level.

If you think you can make a difference to our students and relish the idea of joining our successful, supportive and highly motivated team in the delivery of an excellent languages education, then we want to hear from you!

The Ivy Education Trust works closely with all schools within the Trust and beyond. The Ivy Education Trust celebrates the diversity of each of its schools and is founded upon the alignment of vision and values that we all commonly hold to secure the best outcomes for our pupils.

The name of our Trust is inspired by the story of Dr Ivy Williams. Born in Teignbridge (Newton Abbot), in 1877, she managed what we would wish for all the children and young people of Teignbridge and surrounding area that we serve in our schools by fulfilling her childhood dreams and ambitions.

On 10 May 1922, Dr Ivy Williams became the first woman to be called to the Bar (formally recognised as a qualified Barrister of Law) of England and Wales.

The story of Dr Ivy Williams reminds us of the famous quote from Michelangelo:
“The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low and achieving our mark.”

The Ivy Education Trust supports and challenges all members of our learning community to dream big, aim high and achieve more than they ever thought was possible.

If you share these visions and aspirations, then we very much welcome your application for this post.

The application form and further information are available from www.ivyeducationtrust.co.uk or by email to people@ivyeducationtrust.co.uk.
Please apply by 9am on the closing date.
